Abstract : The frequency management approach recommended includes the following: (1) The selection and dissemination of primary and backup orderwire frequencies from the Corps level to all net control stations (NCS); (2) The selection, assignment, and dissemination of operational frequencies to each net; (3) The accommodation of frequency change requests from the NCS at the Corps level; (4) The transfer of control from the Corps to the Division (or separate Brigade) in contingencies; and (5) The maximization of data rate and refined (microscopic) channel selection capabilities at the individual link level. A physical link representation of the recommended frequency management system is given. Since all link configurations within the Corps region have distances less than 286 km, macroscopic frequency management of intended skywave propagation circuits is a simple processs using vertical incidence sounding (VIS).
