This paper describes the principal features of a broad-band microwave relay system which has recently been installed between New York and Boston. The system operates at frequencies around 4,000 Mc and provides two two-way channels, each accommodating a signal-frequency band extending from 30 cps to 4.5 Mc. Noise and distortion characteristics are satisfactory for the transmission of several hundred simultaneous telephone conversations or a standard black-and-white television program.
