1999-09-23: THE PILOT OF C-FGDE WAS ON A VFR CROSS COUNTRY SOLO FLIGHT FROM ST. ANDREWS (YAV) - BRANDON (YBR) - NEEPAWA - GLADSTONE - YAV. AT APPROXIAMTELY 1904Z, THE A/C DEPARTED RWY 08 AT YBR WITH A RIGHT TURN OUT FOR NEEPAWA. AT APPROXIMATELY 1944Z, THE PILOT OF C- FGDE CALLED YBR FSS REQUESTING A DF STEER BACK TO YBR. WHILE THE FSS COULD COMMUNICATE WITH C-FGDE THE SIGNAL WAS NOT SUFFICIENT TO PROVIDE FOR A DF STEER. YBR FSS CONTACTED WG ACC, BRIEFED THEM ON THE SITUATION AND REQUESTED ASSISTANCE. WG ACC HAD A RADAR TARGET IN THE APPROXIMATE VICINITY OF NEEPAWA AND HAD YBR FSS DIRECT THE A/C TO CONTACT WG ACC ON OUR YBR PAL ( 132.25).
