MARITIME RADIO COMMUNICATIONS-WHICH COURSE TO STEER
This paper deals mainly with long range radio communication with merchant marine vessels. The author firmly believes that satellite communications will cone, but it will take years before a reasonable percentage of all ships will be equipped with a satellite terminal for long range communication. It is therefore worthwhile to consider how the present HF system can be improved, applying the same philosophy which is being used to justify the development of satellite systems. A significant improvement in the present HF system could be achieved by the setting up of an international organisation, charged with the development and implementation of a worldwide operational system for HF terrestrial services.
