In order to provide preliminary information necessary for the specifications, to be used for ultra-high-frequency (u.h.f.) television receivers, the Hohe Eifel area of Germany was visited to observe measurements made by a unit of the Institut fur Rundfunktechnik (I.R.T). The engineers of this team, led by Herr U. Dietz, were extremely co-operative and readily modified their own programme in order to investigate the problem which was of immediate interest to us.

This report describes the results of the investigation, and contains comments concerning the television service in the area. A description of the I.R.T. field strength equipment and their measuring techniques is also included.
