Annex C — Channel usage along the Canada‑United States border

1. General

The purpose of this annex is to highlight the spectrum available for Canadian use in the bands 806-824 MHz and 851-869 MHz along the Canada‑United States border, according to Arrangement F, Sharing Arrangement Between the Department of Industry of Canada and the Federal Communications Commission of the United States of America Concerning the Use of the Frequency Bands 806-824 MHz and 851-869 MHz by the Land Mobile Service Along the Canada‑United States Border. New provisions or modifications to the Canada‑United States arrangement came into effect on August 1, 2011, for all new assignments. Arrangement F should be consulted for the specific provisions.

Figure C1 — Sharing and protection zones, according to Arrangement F, for use of the bands 806-824 MHz and 851-869 MHz (the long description is located below the image)
Description of figure C1

This figure shows a partial map of Canada and the United States illustrating the sharing and protection zones, according to Arrangement F, for use of the bands 806-824/851-869 MHz. There are three sharing zones.

Sharing zone I:
This sharing zone is the area adjacent to the Canada‑United States border, East of longitude 121°30′ W and extending a distance of 100 km within either country.

Sector 1 is defined to be the portion of sharing zone I in the United States and Canada, bounded on the West by 85°W longitude and on the East in Canada by 81°W longitude and in the United States by 80°30′ W longitude.

Sector 2 is defined to be the portion of sharing zone I in the United States and Canada, bounded on the East by 71°W longitude and on the West in Canada by 81°W longitude and in the United States by 80°30′ W longitude.

Sharing zone II:
This sharing zone is the area adjacent to the Canada‑United States border between 121°30′ and 127°W longitude and extending a distance of 140 km within either country.

Sharing zone III:
This sharing zone is the area adjacent to the Alaska‑British Columbia/Yukon Territory border and extending a distance of 100 km within either country.

Protection zone:
The protection zones are the areas adjacent to sharing zones I and III and extending from 100 to 140 km away from the Canada‑United States border within both countries. Exceptions to the areas illustrated are specified in tables C1 and C2.

Note

The areas of London, Kitchener‑Waterloo and Peterborough, Ontario, are recognized as falling within the Protection Zone. See tables C1 and C2 for additional details.

2. Spectrum availability

Figure C2 and tables C1 and C2 below show the spectrum available for Canadian use along the Canada‑United States border according to Arrangement F. All new assignments after August 1, 2011 are subject to Arrangement F. Canadian assignments made before August 1, 2011 may continue operating at their current parameters. However, if using Canadian primary spectrum, existing assignments are subject to the new Arrangement F provisions and the restrictions in the tables below if modifications are made that would extend their existing 22 dBμV/m interference contour further in the direction of the border.

Description of figure C2

Chart: This figure shows the primary frequencies for Canada and the United States. For details, please see the first 2 columns of tables C1 and C2.

Note

For details regarding exceptions to the above, such as the mutual aid channels, interoperability (I/O) channels and the areas of London, Kitchener‑Waterloo and Peterborough, Ontario, please see tables C1 and C2.

3. Limits of effective radiated power and antenna height for general sharing arrangements

Effective radiated power (ERP) is defined as the product of the power supplied to the antenna and its gain relative to a half‑wave dipole in a given direction.

For base stations in sharing zones I (include sectors 1 and 2) and III, and the protection zones, table C3 lists the limits of effective radiated power (ERP) corresponding to the effective antenna height (EAH) ranges shown. In this case, effective antenna height is calculated by subtracting the assumed average terrain elevation (AATE) given in table C5 from the antenna height above mean sea level.

Table C3 — Limits of effective radiated power (ERP) corresponding to effective antenna heights of base stations in sharing zones I (including sectors 1 and 2) and III, and the protection zones
Effective antenna height (EAH) in metres ERP Watts (maximum)
Up to 153 500
Above 153 to 306 125
Above 306 to 458 40
Above 458 to 610 20
Above 610 to 915 10
Above 915 to 1067 6
Above 1067 5

For base stations in sharing zone II, table C4 lists the limits of effective radiated power (ERP) corresponding to the antenna height above mean sea level (AMSL) ranges shown.

Table C4 — Limits of effective radiated power (ERP) corresponding to antenna heights above mean sea level of base stations in sharing zone II
Antenna height above mean sea level (AMSL) in metres ERP Watts (maximum)
Up to 504 500
Above 504 to 610 350
Above 610 to 763 200
Above 763 to 915 140
Above 915 to 1067 100
Above 1067 to 1220 75
Above 1220 to 1372 70
Above 1372 to 1523 65
Above 1523 5
