Audio Sample
Positive train control (PTC) is a system of functional requirements for monitoring and controlling train movements as an attempt to provide increased safety. PTC is currently being implemented in the United States on freight, intercity, and commuter rail lines.

PTC can have various implementations, including ACSES and I-ETMS. TDMATime Division Multiple Access is used in this particular sample recorded.

Frequencies[edit]

PTC is designated to use the 220MHz frequency band.
