This page provides some information on the Co07 format and the corresponding notices.
The Co07 format specifications are provided in the current Annex 3 of the both Wi95revCo07 and Ma02revCo07 Special Arrangements.
This data format was adopted at Constanţa 2007 for submission of data to ECO by the administrations. A high degree of compatibility exists between the Co07 format and to the ITU file formats for submission of electronic notices for T-DAB in the context of GE-06 Agreement (see ITU-R CR/120 and CR/262).
Submission of Notices to ECO
In accordance with the §4.14 and §6.7 administrations shall communicate information to the Plan Management Body (ECO) in the electronic form. For submission of basic characteristics of T-DAB allotments and assignments the data format Co07specified in Annex 3 of the relevant Special Arrangement shall be used.
Administrations may provisionally use for submission of T-DAB allotments and assignments data one of the old data formats (ASCII97 or MA02). Consult the web page on the page providing information on the different data formats.
If a submission to ECO is made in a paper form the electronic data file(s) containing relevant allotments and/or assignment data shall be attached.
Administrations may wish to use the following examples for their notifications in the Co07 format:
For T-DAB Allotments:
For T-DAB Assignments.
This document provides additional details on the notices.
The following software tool can be used to convert T-DAB format from ASCII97 format into Co07 format or from MA02 format into Co07 format and vice versa:
T-DAB conversion (exe file) and T-DAB conversion (set up files)
Please note that this is beta version of the tool, therefore. you are welcome to contact ERO (email@example.com) if you identify bugs.
A User Documentation was also developed in order to guide the users.
Validation of the notices
Since the Co07 is similar to the ITU file formats for submission of electronic notices for T-DAB in the context of GE-06 Agreement (see ITU-R CR/120 and CR/262), the tool developed by the BR for the validation of the GE06 notices may be used for partial validation of the Co07 notices (taking into account some differences such as frequency range...). See the GE06 Digital Broadcasting Notice Processing Tool on the ITU-T web site.
