In Codes of Practice

Download the Best Practice Requirements.

ARCIA has released a new document titled ‘Code of Practice for the Pairing of VHF Aeronautical Stations and VHF or UHF Land Mobile Radios’.

This code of practice has been developed to give an overview of the best practice requirements for connecting VHF Airband ground service systems to local VHF or UHF land mobile radio systems. The code has been developed to try to ensure that there is minimal risk of interference with Airband radio systems as well as to make ground-based communications systems as efficient as possible.

The code is written after consultation with the ACMA and Air Services Australia to ensure that areas of concern by all parties have been addressed. All radio systems in an airport environment should follow similar engineering formats.
