The ATSC A/110 standard specifies a transmitter identification (TxID) system using RF water-mark. The system, using a 16-bit Kasami sequence, can identify up to 16 millions DTV Transmitters. With the recent development of the ATSC Mobile DTV (M/H), the implementation of transmitter identification will enable new capabilities to receivers in mobile environment. In this paper, we investigate the TxID reception over mobile channels with Doppler fading, dynamic multipath, carrier offset and clock offset, etc. Our simulation results have confirmed the validity of TxID scheme in mobile environment.
