Broadcast planning resources

This information helps the broadcasting industry understand our planning procedures and practices.

We develop these resources for:

  • broadcasters
  • planning consultants
  • providers of transmission infrastructure 
  • others in the broadcasting industry

Technical planning

The Technical Planning Parameters and Methods for Terrestrial Broadcasting (TPPMs) detail the planning and measurement methods, parameter values and planning assumptions we use for planning analog broadcasting services.

The TPPs are based on recommendations and reports of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), as well as planning practices developed in Australia, North America, Europe and Britain over many years.

Broadcast planning instructions

We create broadcast planning instructions (BPIs) when we want to clarify a planning activity. This could be an existing practice or one we have created or amended.

Note: BPI 6 has been omitted as it is no longer relevant.
