Abstract:

Recommendations for tests of 2.4 and 38.4 kbs data transmission on troposcatter radio relay sections are given. It is recommended that the tests be designed around an error recording facility which records error, synchronizing, and radio signal information in IBM format to allow automatic computer analysis. The recommended data sets are the Bell System four-phase data models. It is suggested that the tests be conducted on the RADC Model City to Verona section or on an ATandT tropo system. Laboratory simulation of field measurements is also suggested. The emphasis throughout is on practical data tests with measurements of the medium relegated to an auxiliary role. A brief review of the recently published studies by Sunde and by Bello and Nelin is included. Author
