Dear Mr. Jacobsen:

This is further to your above referenced letters of 2 July 1992 and 2 September 1992 regarding your proposal to establish a Terrestrial Flight Telephone System (TFTS) in Greenland.

We have now completed our review of your proposal. Based upon the sites and channel blocks proposed for your TFTS, we do not anticipate any conflicts with our national air-to-ground public telephone service. However, to facilitate the orderly implementation of each country's air-to-ground public telephone system, we recommend that when one country plans to establish a new ground station that is within 885 kilometres of the territorial boundaries of the other country, coordination with the other country will be required prior to their being put into service.

Please confirm your acceptance of the above arrangement as an understanding between our two Agencies by signing below and returning one copy to me.

Yours truly,

R.W. Jones
Director General
Radio Regulatory Branch

I agree.

Terrestrial Flight Telephone Systems

Dear Sirs/Madams:

The Danish administration investigate the possibilities to establish a Terrestrial Flight Telephone System (TFTS) in Greenland. If so the system will consist of five land-based stations at the following locations:

  1. Julianehaab - position 46W00 60N43
  2. Prins Christianssund - position 43W10 60N04
  3. Nanortalik - position 45W17 60N10
  4. Frederikshaab - position 49W05 62N00
  5. Godthaab - position 51W35 64N10

The above stations will have the following technical characteristics:

Frequencies: 400 kHz within the frequency band 849.02 - 850.996 MHz
E.R.P.: + 36.5 dBm
Harmonic: - 60 dBc
Spurious: - 60 dBc
Modulation: 6K00G1E
Channels: 60

The airborne stations will have the following technical characteristics:

Frequencies: 400 kHz within the frequency band 894.002 - 895.996 MHz
E.R.P.: + 32.0 dBm
Harmonic: - 60 dBc
Spurious: - 60 dBc
Modulation: 6K00G1E
Channels: 60
Max flight level: 40.000 feet

Maximum coverage area for the land-based stations will be approximately 185 miles.

Your comments to the system in question would be highly appreciated.

Please find annexed to this letter more detailed information concerning the system and the propagation model used. Kind regards

Marius Jacobsen
