The article discusses the design process for a land-mobile radio (LMR) system that starts with the user-needs survey and proceeds with budgeting capital expenditures (CapEx) and operating expenditures (OpEx). It continues with the discussion of radio-coverage requirements, with emphasis on reliability and confidence levels. The article also mentions the need for a review of frequency spectrum, followed by the design of the system that includes consideration of the frequency band, system format, site and equipment determination and power requirements.
