Title: NIST Measurements in the 750 MHz Band to Support Emergency Response Radio Communications
Published: May 07, 2010
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has just released the sixth in a series of NIST technical notes (TN) on radio signal penetration of radio signals in large building structures (apartment complex, hotel, office buildings, sports stadium, shopping mall, etc). These reports are intended to give emergency responders and system designers a better understanding of what to expect from the radio-propagation environment in disaster situations. The overall goal of this project is to create a large, set of public-domain data describing the attenuation and variability of radio signals in various building types in the public-safety frequency bands.
