    Availability of television white space is of interest for developing new data networks which operate between licensed users. The practical sensing and computational modelling of this band has been the focus of study in this and a preceding paper. In this paper a high spatial resolution was used to look at the areas that a single channel was available in moderately rough terrain in the UK. The size of areas which shared available frequencies was found to be small and potential problems with spot measurements were highlighted. The practical validation of the software model with a measurement campaign has been started, the early results of this show the model to be reasonably accurate in exposed areas with little building but at portable equipment heights in streets the model shows significant variation from measured results.
