I know how to get the PAL frequencies for contacting centre enroute controllers. Anyone know if there's a diagram showing these different sectors split up for the areas these centre enroute controllers control?
You can also just look up a near by airport and see what the PAL or CTR freq is in the CFS.
I don't believe that that information is readily available through public sources. Not that it is too secret or anything, just no need for that to be published.Karl419 wrote:Right, I can see the PAL's in the CFS but I'm looking more in terms of how the ACC would combine several sectors into one specialty.
Is there a map or description of that?
My region is Timmins/Moosonee, which combines with Sudbury/North Bay from 8h00 PM ET to 7h00 AM ET Mon to Fri and splits at 7h00 AM. One of their controllers told me many years ago, if there are 3 controller on rotation, they work one sector for 90 minutes, take a 45 minute break and work the adjacent sector. If there are 4 on staff, they rotate 1 hour on 1 hour off in the same sector.
I have been to Toronto and Peterborough Ontario in the last 15 years. Simcoe sector 127.000 is combined with East Radar 124.92 and Peterborough 134.25 during varied times, no set schedule. When I was in Toronto tuning in to these two sectors, they would combine from as early as 9h25 PM ET to as late as 10h40 PM ET. Weekends would split and combine at different set times too.
Hope this helps.
