    The paper describes the provision that has been made at United Kingdom Coast Stations to meet the major requirement for ship/shore communications created by off-shore oil exploration and related activities. The constraints imposed by spectrum shortage and congestion are discussed and an indication given of the magnitude of traffic handled and the performance achieved. The use of developing techniq...

  • Interference aspects of off-shore terrestrial microwave networks

    Publication Year: 1980 , Page(s): 390 - 396

    In an off-shore environment, as a general rule, communications need to be established directly between terminals with no provision for intervening repeaters. In planning terrestrial microwave communication networks, this imposes a requirement to use trans-horizon links to a greater extent than in land-based communications. The attendant problems of interference and practical methods for reducing s... View full abstract»

    This paper provides an outline description of the Post Office trans-horizon radio link services to off-shore oil/gas production platforms and takes a brief look into the future. It also compares the result of using different methods of predicting the statistical behaviour of the radio path transmission loss, and offers a possible method to give an estimate of the cumulative distribution of scatter...

  • The feasibility of using spread-spectrum communication systems for the land mobile service on a non-interference basis with other users

    This paper examines the conditions which would allow land mobile radio systems using spread-spectrum techniques to share certain r.f. channel allocations on a mutual non-interference basis with the existing users of these channels, namely the television broadcasters. An experimental spread-spectrum communication system has been developed and this has been used to examine the feasibility of bandsha... View full abstract»

  • Modelling the digital magnetic recording behaviour of shielded magneto-resistive replay heads with displaced elements

    Publication Year: 1980 , Page(s): 419 - 425

    This paper is concerned with shielded magneto-resistive replay head structures in which the sensitive magneto-resistive elements are displaced to be either nearer to one shield than the other or deep into the gap between the shields. These structures are analysed experimentally using a resistive paper analogue and theoretically using standard potential theory. It is found that `sideways¿ displace... View full abstract»
