Abstract : Results of an experiment to determine the characteristics of VHF radio links are presented. The experiment was conducted in a plain surrounded by mountains area with a system that allowed to measure the delay spread (difference between the maximum and minimum delay propagation paths) due to multipath propagation. Various sites were explored with measurement being made at different carrier frequencies within the VHF band. In this environment, an interesting result was that delay spreads increase with the carrier frequency.
