A MOTORIST RADIO SERVICE

THE OBJECTIVE WAS TO ESTABLISH THE BASIS FOR THE PROMULGATION OF FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING A MOTORIST ROADIO SERVICE. SUCH SERVICE WAS TO PROVIDE A MOTORIST THE MEANS FOR IMMEDIATELY OBTAINING INFORMATION PERTINENT TO DRIVING CONDITIONS AND FOR OBTAINING ASSISTANCE FROM OTHER MOTORISTS OR FROM ORGANIZATIONS THAT PROVIDE HIGHWAY SERVICES. IT WOULD ALSO PROVIDE A MEANS FOR NO-DELAY REPORTING OF INFORMATION BETWEEN MOTORIST AND HIGHWAY AUTHORITIES FOR TRANSMISSION OF AUTOMATIC ROAD-HAZARD WARNINGS, AND FOR AUTOMATIC LOCATION OF A COMMUNICATING VEHICLE. THIS SERVICE WOULD THUS PROVIDE FOR RAPID DETECTION AND AUTOMATIC LOCATION OF VEHICLE EMERGENCIES. THIS REPORT PROVIDES A BASIS FOR A RECOMMENDATION TO THE FCC THAT A 2.4 MHZ OF SPECTRUM IN TWO 1.2 MHZ BLOCKS SEPARATED BY AT LEAST 20 MHZ, BE PROVIDED BETWEEN 100 MHZ AND 500 MHZ FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A MOTORIST COMMUNICATION SYSTEM. THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SYSTEM ARE DESCRIBED IN DETAIL. /FHWA/
