1 Introduction

1.1 Purpose of the document

1.1.1 The purpose of this document is to provide a guidance methodology for the utilisation of the

    Families and Frequencies employed by the Aeronautical Communication Stations on the

    North Atlantic, to support a better management plan of the available families, frequencies

    and human resources, in order to increase the efficiency and capacity of the

    Communications Network.

1.1.2 It will also include information about HF frequencies for air-ground communications. In

    addition, it will contain contact information for Aeronautical Stations.
