Abstract: This report documents the assessment of FM subcarrier performance for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applications in three areas of interest in the United States. These areas are: 1) The Interstate 95 corridor from Richmond, Virginia, to Portland, Maine; 2) The Midwest corridor from Gary, Indiana, to Chicago, Illinois, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, along Interstates 80, 90, and 94; and 3) The Atlanta, Georgia, Metropolitan Area. This study indicates that subcarrier systems of carefully chosen FM stations can provide good performance for ITS applications.
