    It is known that mobile communication systems are susceptible to radio-frequency interference (RFI) generated by automotive ignition systems. In this paper the automotive ignition noise generated by individual engine cylinders is investigated. Using specially designed instrumentation, the pulse amplitude densities of individual cylinder ignition noise are measured and analyzed. It is found that th... View full abstract»

    A functional land mobile service requires that radio communications be ensured outside as well as inside of motorway tunnels. An experimental investigation about radiation and propagation of VHF radio waves in a 150-m motorway tunnel is presented. Three radiating systems, to convey radio signals into and out of the tunnel, are examined: antennas slotted coaxial cable balanced two-wire line. Result... View full abstract»

    Improved response time in providing emergency medical services (EMS) is attained through development of regional or areawide radio communications, permitting the use of common dispatch or control centers to coordinate and optimize use both of the facilities available for emergency medical treatment and of the radio spectrum allocated for this function. With the allocation last year of radio channe... View full abstract»

    This paper examines the possible application to police communications of a dispersed array of low-power stations operating under an area-wide channel plan. A technique is given for generating the complex channel plans that are used. It is shown that police effectiveness is not reduced and that the concept permits unlimited growth of cities at the highest population density with a fixed and reasona... View full abstract»
