Trade Publication
The article focuses on the two working groups of International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) which addresses the issues in digital distortion and radio noise in the U.S. The Testing Task Group will collaborate with the National Institute of Standards and Technology to identify the scenarios to be screened to assess the problem's nature and scope and its solutions. The Best Practices Task Group will distinguish the procedural and technical solutions and provides input from users.
