Abstract
Several HF radio systems operated by companies engaged in off-shore petroleum exploration activities along the east coast of Canada have been investigated. It was found that poor maintenance of the radio equipment and inadequate antennas are the principal reasons for unreliable communications. Improvements are proposed to increase the performance of the present system. Alternative systems such as troposheric scatter and satellite are discussed. In addition, the concept of a single shore station to provide HF communications for all exploration companies is presented.
