Describes an integrated VHF communications system responsive to the needs of the waterways industry as feasible both practically and economically. The preferred leased-line design is based on proven technology and in capable of providing greatly improved service to the industry while minimizing capital investment. The proposed system offers a new class of marine radio service with direct-dial capability. The system will provide a dramatic improvement in industry communications through automation and network switching. As designed, it can be expanded to accommodate office-to-office telephone traffic. A pilot program is recommended as the first phase of implementation to limit initial capital investment while demonstrating the feasibility of the system and encouraging industry participation.
