Abstract : This report presents standardized procedures for predicting the performance of DCS terrestrial LOS and OTH radio paths. These procedures are intended primarily for the use of Quality Assurance personnel in assessing the performance of existing DCS analog radio links and other similar links that are interconnected with DCS. Most of the procedures can be used to design new analog radio paths. (Author)
