It seems to me that it could be very possible to create a lptv station in the 902-928Mhz portion of the band.
Cable TV channel allocations will allow normal Receivers to pick it up.
In the “jumboBand”
143 907.25 to 911.75
144 913.25 to 917.75
145 919.25 to 923.75
In fact it should be possible and quite practical to Get a DVB modulator putting out 16-QAM or something to go full digital on a modern receiver.
The trick here being the receive station would need a good high gain antenna maybe a pre-amp and a short run of high quality coax. With your transmitter at height @1 Watt and some gain antenna 15+ miles could be achieved.
Current Wireless Internet equipment on that frequency can shoot out over 100miles although its FSK not 16-QAM
And the best part here seems to be that it should be legal under the part 15 ISM rules.
