1 — Northern Alberta Forest Industry

This appendix applies to mobile stations only.

Safety first! These frequencies may only be used for communications related to the operations of the specified company and only in the designated area. No other use is permitted. You must obtain the permission of the specified company and have a valid mobile radio station licence.

For safety reasons, companies logging in the same area are encouraged to consult with each other and designate one frequency for all to use while travelling the access road. Permission expires when the company terminates its operations on that access road.

When applying for your licence, you should request the following licence appendices:

  • Appendix 1 to obtain the Alberta forest industry frequencies.
  • Appendices 6 and RR to obtain the British Columbia forest industry frequencies.
  • Appendix B1 to obtain the basic package of 10 VHF frequencies for general mobile-only use.

All of your radio frequencies must appear on the face of your mobile radio station licence or on the appendices referenced on your licence. Frequencies used for the sole purpose of communicating through a radiocommunication service provider repeater are exempt from this requirement. 

Note: Radiocommunication service provider "talk-around" frequencies are not exempt if used beyond the service provider's licensed service area.

To obtain a radio station licence or to amend an existing licence, submit an application to the nearest Industry Canada office. Application forms may be obtained from Industry Canada offices, radiocommunication service providers or our website at http://www.ic.gc.ca/spectrum.

Companies wishing to have their frequencies appear on the next revision of this list should contact the nearest Industry Canada office.
