Enhancing Radio Communications

The objective of this research project is to determine if the dead areas in the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) radio communications are eliminated by utilizing new radio equipment installed on existing and soon-to-be constructed commercial communications towers on NJDOT property. If all dead areas cannot be eliminated during the course of this study, then a secondary objective would be to identify those areas that need additional tower/equipment installations. New technology for enhancing the low band radio communications network will be identified.
