High Seas Radiotelephone Service enables a person to make "Telephone Calls' between ships at sea and the telephone in their home or office. The changing role of this service in serving the needs of the maritime community and the increasing use of this service, has placed new and changing demands on the operation of both Ship and Shore, radio and telephone facilities. The operation of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company's Coast Stations, the effects of single sideband operation, and of changing traffic and technical requirements are discussed, along with proposed methods to improve Ship and Coast Station operation, so as to make the most efficient use of this service.
