Abstract:

The multiple pair cable used in current intra-base communications tends to complicate system installation, operation and maintenance. An exchange area radio net using a low cost and lightweight transceiver would be a major improvement. This study investigates the suitability of digital transmission on millimeter radio for the intra-base system. A base communication model is derived to illustrate the telephone transmission requirement and the physical characteristics of the intra-base system. A radio system concept is developed and evaluated. Background studies cover design questions in the areas of propagation, system installation, system self-interference and radio design. A cost analysis indicates the economic practicality of the system by comparison to multiple pair cable system costs. Author
