Dual polarized measurements comparing the received power of a line of sight broadcast signal in the ultra-high frequency band with received power in suburban streets and indoors including high rise buildings are presented in this paper. Both the co-polarized and cross-polarized fades are therefore measured in the different locations. Their purpose is twofold: 1) to identify the importance of using polarization when considering hidden node margins in spectrum sensing of television white spaces and 2) to indicate how polarization can be beneficial in improving the shadowing margin to increase the path loss from the secondary to primary user and thus further protect digital terrestrial television receivers from harmful interference. The impact of polarization in open environments with low clutter or near windows inside high rise buildings is more significant than in densely cluttered spaces experiencing strong multipath.
