  • Instructions

This radio is capable of the following frequencies, making it a good choice for logging roads and back country:

The common logging radio frequencies listed in the table below may be used in the authorized areas and in areas north of 51 degrees latitude in Ontario.

Recreational drivers on the logging roads require reliable vehicle to vehicle communications while on the roadways. For this reason, eight common logging channels (radio frequencies) have been made available for two-way, truck-to-truck radio communications while on certain designated roadways in Northern Ontario. The intent of these channels is to coordinate the safe movement of vehicles on logging roads rather than provide “chat lines” for truck operators. In order to minimize potential radio interference to other radio users, especially essential safety services, use of these channels is restricted to specific geographical areas.

It is very important to understand that use of any channel or frequency outside its authorized area could result in interference to other radio users. Such interference could create dangerous situations and jeopardize lives – including yours. The other radio user, for example, could be an ambulance system dispatching a first response team, or a municipal fire department dispatching a fire truck in a community. Misuse of a radio channel could also cause interference to a heart monitor at a local hospital, or a paging service trying to contact a doctor in order to respond to a sick child.

A valid ISED Land Mobile License for Appendix N9 is required prior to deployment. If you need help please contact us for assistance!
