British Rail has established a range of radio surveying facilities to assist in the design and commissioning of both a wide area mobile radio network and specialized track to train radio systems. A quantitative practical approach has been employed. Temporary fixed stations are established in the field and a data logging system is used on either a road or rail vehicle to record field strength variations as the vehicle proceeds along a planned route. Subsequent analysis and combination with geographic data allows the production of field strength maps and graphs as well as tabular survey results.
