Measurements were made of mobile radio-telephone transmission at 450 Mc in New York City using frequency modulation. Comparison was made with transmission at 150 Mc using identical speech modulation. Effective radiated powers were about equal. Direct comparison tests were made with the receivers installed in a moving automobile. The transmitter and the receiver used at 450 Mc were developed especially for the job. The receivers used at the two frequencies had substantially the same noise figures. The tests permitted estimates of the relative magnitudes of the shadow losses at the two frequencies and included measurements of rf noise. Subjective tests of circuit merit comparing the two frequencies were made by a number of observers.
