RADIO COMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT FOR THE SOCIETE DES CHEMINS DE FER VICNAUS DU ZAIRE (CVZ)

The radio communications system for the new railway line between Akeli and Bumba of the Chemins de fer Vicinaux du Zaire commenced operation in December 1972. The backbone of the installation is a 400 MHz directional radio link. The control center is at Aketi, from which every station and locomotive on the 185 km long railway line can be reached. The radio communications system eliminates complex signal equipment and ensures reliable train services.
