What is that New I-70 Antenna?

by Clayton Moore and HAM Radio Operator K0LWC

Dateline: I-70 Eastbound – St. Patrick’s Day – Just west of Dowd Junction and the Vail Exits.

Just a standard I-70 overhead road sign and associated WebCam…HOWEVER there is a newly installed Antenna…for CDOT/Panasonic’s new V2X prototype system.clip_image002

This is a CDOT/Panasonic Prototype System vehicle-to-everything V2X technology. Purportedly for Traffic Safety reasons. This new radio system is designed for 2-Way communication between Vehicle and CDOT broadcast safety notifications. In the future…likely use for driverless vehicle’s if/when that ever comes to pass on our Interstate roads.

To learn more about this Prototype (Click On) the CDOT News graphic below.

Special Thanks to young Ham Radio Operator Matt – K0LWC who was the first to “ID” this new Radio system!
