PREDICTED RELIABILITIES AND COVERAGE AREAS FOR HF MARITIME COMMUNICATIONS
Some techniques for determining the communication reliabilities and coverage areas for HF communications are presented in this paper. The prediction and data handling methods needed for an analysis are described. A study done for the U.S. Coast Guard then is presented to demonstrate the application of these methods to solve a particular problem. The objective of the Coast Guard work is to determine what combination of frequencies is needed to maximize coverage and reliability while using the least number of frequency bands. This study was done for two defined geographical regions: the North Atlantic and the South Pacific.
