The VHF (very high frequency) range of the radio spectrum is the band extending
from 30 MHz to 300 MHz. The wavelengths corresponding to these limit frequencies
are 10 meters and 1 meter.
In the VHF band, electromagnetic fields are affected by the earth's ionosphere and
troposphere. Ionospheric propagation occurs regularly in the lower part of the VHF
spectrum, mostly at frequencies below 70 MHz. In this mode, the communication range
can sometimes extend over the entire surface of the earth.
The VHF band is popular for mobile two-way radio communication. A great deal of
satellite communication and broadcasting is done at VHF. Channels and sub
bands within the VHF portion of the radio spectrum are allocated by the International
Telecommunication Union (ITU).
OSDMA has taken set up Dedicated Civil VHF Network
in the State with 403 base stations covering all District and Block Headquarters,
some tahasils, GPs, ODRAF units, and other locations. Besides, 46 mobile stations
have been installed in the vehicles of the Collectors and other officers at the
State level. 140 VHF handsets (Walkie-Talkie) have also been provided to the State
