Highway Information Systems & Low Power Radio Stations (LPR). Operation
of the stations is governed by FCC Part 90.242 Rules. A FCC license is
required. Information Radio Stations may be fixed or portable.
Subcomponents may include transmitter, antenna and ground system,
digital voice player, wattmeter, cabinet with conventional or Corbin
locks, lightning arrestors for RF, power and telephone lines, coaxial

accumulation and security measures to prevent unauthorized program
access. Options include synchronization, battery backup, solar power,
remote programming by local, network or telco, multi-station audio
distribution via RF or LAN / WAN or wireless network.
