    Abstract

    We discuss the scope and nature of opportunities for white space devices to operate in the UHF band in Australia after the digital dividend. We identify opportunities for white space usage in the reduced UHF band to be used for television services as well as in nearby guard bands. We extend the discussion to the longer-term by examining scenarios in which broadcasting services could use the synergistic effects of white space devices to either voluntarily migrate out of the UHF band or secure their occupation of this important spectrum beachhead.
