Incident at FORT McPHERSON NT (CZFM) (ATM - other)


2003-07-03: The CARS operator at Fort McPherson had 2 aircraft (C-GEAG and VH-SHW) in his area and he was unable to communicate with the pilots. He was receiving their calls but was unable to respond because his transmitter was not working. To compound the problem, the CARS portable radio (which had been on the battery charger for almost 2 days) was not working either.
2003-07-10: UPDATE ANS and Airspace reported that NAV CANADA technical staff have rectified the problem. In addition, Aviation Services GNWT will be checking to ensure CARS O/Cs are familiar with the procedure for switching frequencies on the second transmitter that is available.
