Transportation Communications Newsletter
Tuesday, July 5, 2011 – ISSN 1529-1057
My primary goal for the TCN has been to be a consistent source of quality information about all aspects of communications in all modes of transportation. By doing that, I hope that in some small way I contribute to the improvement of transportation communications by letting readers around the world know what their colleagues are doing, new technologies that are developed and other information that can advance the art and science of transport communications. I hope I've been meeting your expectations.
I'd like to see what I can do to improve the TCN and the first step is to ask you for your suggestions. Please email me at email@example.com to let me know what you'd like to see in the TCN. What's missing? What would you like to see eliminated? Are there formatting changes you'd like to see? Any and all suggestions are welcome. I hope to do a survey soon, based in part on your comments. Thanks for your continued support and feedback.
