Summary: 
The reception quality of terrestrial digital broadcasting when the directional pattern of a mobile terminal is controlled has been experimentally evaluated using test signal. It was found that the reception probabilities with a controlled directional pattern were significantly improved over the case when an omni-directional antenna was used.
