AN INTEGRATED VHF COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM FOR U.S. INLAND WATERS

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.
