Radio Identifiers for the Joint Arctic Weather Stations (JAWS)

(Source: memo 14 May 1957)

 

On March 1, 1951 the radio beacon frequencies and identifications for the Joint Arctic Weather Stations (JAWS) were changed to conform to the general pattern across Canada where the beacon identification and meteorological call sign of the station were identical. The new frequencies and identifications became:

 

Station             Call Sign                     Beacon Frequency                       Identification

 

Eureka             CHS                                      201 kcs                                   EU

Resolute          CHW                                     391 kcs                                    RB

Isachsen          CJ6L                                     240 kcs                                   IC

Mould Bay       VD2K                                     230 kcs                                   MD

Alert                CHV                                     203 kcs                                    LT

 

 

At a meeting held on July 8, 1954 in Ottawa the following decisions were taken:

 

Circuits to be Used

 

  • Resolute-Edmonton would be the primary circuit for all scheduled routine weather reports, other DOT scientific and administrative traffic, personal paid messages to and from Resolute, and all scheduled forecasts from Edmonton;

 

  • Resolute-Churchill would be the primary circuit for all operational meteorological traffic such as unscheduled forecasts and requests for same, all RCAF administrative and operational traffic, and all aircraft information traffic;

 

  • Broadcast commitments from Resolute to surface ships and aircraft must be determined by frequencies to be used for broadcast.

 

(Alternative weather circuit was Norman Wells).

 

 

Resolute                       VFR4

Mould Bay                    CHS23

Isachsen                      CHS24

Eureka                         CHS20

Alert                            CHS21

 

 

In May 1957 the radio beacon frequencies and identifications for the Joint Arctic Stations were further modified as follows:

 

Eureka             CHS                                        205 kcs                             EU

Alert                CHV                                       240 kcs                             LT (A2 emission, modulated cw)

Sachs Harbour                                                 321 kcs                            SY
