In this paper, we consider a hybrid framework combining compressive spectrum sensing with geo-location database to find the spectrum holes in cognitive radio. In the hybrid framework, a geo-location database algorithm is proposed to be stored locally at secondary users (SUs) to remove the extra transmission link to a centralized remote geo-location database. Specifically, by utilizing the output of geo-location database algorithm, a data-assisted non-iteratively reweighted least squares (DNRLS)

In addition, an efficient method for the calculation of maximum allowable equivalent isotropic radiated power in TV white space (TVWS) is also designed to further relax SUs. The convergence and complexity of the proposed DNRLS algorithm are analyzed theoretically. Furthermore, the proposed framework is tested on real-time signals and data after having been validated by simulated signals and data in TVWS.
