5680?

#1 Post by NunavutPA-12 » Sun Oct 23, 2016 6:24 am

Does Arctic Radio still monitor 5680 kHz? If so, does anyone know where the receiver/transmitter sites are located?

Baker Lake has a RCO for 5680, as does Iqaluit, last I read. Not sure about the rest.

I'll hit up the CFS next time I am at work.

Thanks.

In doing some more research, it seems that Inuvik, Resolute and Yellowknife all have RCO's on 5680. So with Baker Lake and Iqaluit, that should cover my area pretty well. I'll have to try it one of these days.

Arctic has very good coverage on 56. If I can't get ahold of them it's probably the equipment in the aircraft I'm flying that's at fault.

Or because you're doing it over the PA.

I've only read back two decent clearances from Montreal to the passengers .....
