Abstract

In designing multi-channel RF data systems, terrain and other physical limitations sometimes require the use of a high power "hole-tilling" RF transmission site. Unfortunately, RF data radio modems sometimes lock on to the higher power transmitters, even when a lower (but acceptable) power transmitter is physically closer. The result is overuse of the high power channel, and corresponding underuse of the lower power channels. We present a way to prevent a mobile fleet from "camping out" on these high power channels.
