This report describes a complete system design for medium frequency ( MF) wireless radio systems for use in coal mines. The emphasis is on AC mines where no trolley wire exists and, for which, conventional trolley phone communications cannot be used. The report constitutes an MF system design handbook and includes a compendium of all previous MF technology elements as well as a reference index with abstracts of all pertinent literature. A particular strawman system design analysis is included for the Helvetia Coal Co. Lucerne # Mine in the Upper Freeport Seam.
