General information

The MFK 16 DVB-T signal meter meets the highest quality standards based on its design and highly reliable workmanship. DVB-T signals can easily be measured, as the spectrum is not relevant and there is no need to see a picture on the screen. Also, the signal levels of adjacent analogue channels can be represented with the MFK 16. Additionally, it provides a standard list of all VHF/UHF channels.

This manual tells you how to select the broadcasters covering the individual regions and all the stations they provide.

The manual features the latest available information. You can find the very latest information and updates on the Internet at

“www.kathrein.de”.

We will in future be making additional region lists available by way of software updates.
