The report describes the telemetry propagation characteristics of the AFMDC test track when operated at L and S-band frequencies, and based on this data, an estimate of the cost of changing to these bands from the present 800 MHz band is presented. The report is intended to be self sufficient in that all reference drawings of the track configuration which influence the propagation characteristics are included. The mathematical models for various propagation characteristics are derived and compared to experiment. All available data on present and proposed use of the 1400 and 200 MHz bands by nearby facilities are presented in tabular and graphical form. The influence of the current IRIG Standards on system operating in the 1400 andor 2200 MHz bands is studied and described. A system block diagram for the system changeover from 800 MHz to the 1400 andor 2200 MHz bands, together with descriptive text and a cost breakdown is included. Author
