Order purpose statement

This order provides guidance and reference material to be used in the installation of remote communications facilities, i.e., air-to-ground radio communications facilities, in support of the Capital Investment Plan. This order also outlines the orderly approach leading to the establishment, relocation, and upgrade of remote communications facilities. Every effort was made to consider those activities required with tasks to be completed first, followed with tasks to be completed in a finished operational remote communications facility. The expected results of establishing a complete standards guide to be followed by all service areas includes cost avoidance through: (l) improved grounding and bonding requirements; (2) reduced maintenance travel and staff time; and (3) reduced retrofitting for implementation of modern equipment.
