Many land mobile radio systems have a require- ment to also integrate some form of air-to-ground communications. It is not usually feasible to use the same radio frequencies for air-to-ground communi- cation as those used for land mobile communication. Therefore, an air-to-ground network using separate frequencies must be used which can lead to difftcul- ties in cell selection. The problems are described further in this article cell together with a special air- to-ground mobile as a proposed solution. The arti- cle describes a TETRA radio system, but is equally applicable to other technologies.
