Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) plays a vital role in opportunistic access to spectrum. A key component of DSA is preventing interference to the incumbent (primary) user from the secondary user. We present the results of an experiment to analyze the output signal and spectral mask of a low-cost TVWS device at specific power levels and specific channels in order to evaluate its potential level of interference to primary users.
