    The history of the Vehicular Technology Society (VTS), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) is traced from its establishment in 1949 as the Vehicular and Railroad Communications Professional Group, through its existence as the Professional Group on Vehicular Communications, (PGVC), and up to its present role in mobile communications, automotive technology, and transportat...

    A random model for urban ultrahigh frequency (UHF)- multipath propagation is proposed. The model uses an optical analogy, which can be well justified at these high frequencies. Several results are obtained. The transfer function and its autocorrelation properties are investigated. Also the time domain behavior is studied. The model is finally tested against experimental data from a field trial mad... View full abstract»

    Burst error characteristics are studied by using a Rayleigh and Nakagami-Rice fading simulator. Burst error length distribution estimated with fade duration is described. Thus burst length shortening by means of dual frequency diversity is a promising candidate in order to introduce safely forward error correction (FEC) coding into digital land mobile communication systems.

    The theoretical and experimental evaluation of the electromagnetic fields in the immediate vicinity of resonant dipole antennas is presented. This type of antenna is widely used with portable and mobile radio transmitters. The work presented herein has been motivated by the concern that future Radio Frequency Protection Guides with respect to human exposure to nonionizing electromagnetic radiation...

    The results of an experimental program to evaluate the electric field near dipole antennas are presented. The measured field intensities are compared with the numerical values computed using the theory developed in Part I of this paper. The theoretical and measured field intensities are in excellent correlation even for observation points spaced from the axis of the dipole less than one hundredth ... View full abstract»
