b. Suppose that symbol A is assigned to a station S. Then, on a
heavy traffic system, that station, one hop away from S, could be
assigned A1 on a lighter traffic system the station one hop away from
S could be assigned B or M.
c. The series, of symbols with prime and non-prime letters (A,
A1, B, B1, M, M1) need not be used for heavy traffic systems only.
However, the single ABM series or the single A1, B1, M1, series is
better for the lighter traffic systems because it permits a greater
d. A system can be made up partly of one series of symbols and
partly of another, such as A1, A, B1, M1.

50. XY Plan.
The XY plan is used when planning a very heavy traffic network.
This plan is not as flexible as the ABM and double ABM.
Interconnection between the XY plan and the ABM or double ABM plan
a. The XY plan (figure 27 uses the same six frequency blocks as
the ABM and double ABM plans.
Station labeled X and Y can
communicate with each other (without mutual interference) by using
very high frequency or ultra high frequency channels in four
frequency blocks (two in each direction).
