Additional System Details

System Information

The AFRRCS network is a trunked radio system in the province of Alberta, Canada, built by Harris Corporation, in co-ordination with the government entities Service Alberta and the Alberta Solicitor General, office of Public Security (SGPS).

The system is an APCO Project 25 Phase 1 (FDMA) digital trunking system in the 700MHz and VHF-hi (136-174MHz) bands. Some sites in mountainous terrain and other similar regions will utilize a "VHF overlay", involving non-trunked (conventional) P25 VHF-hi (136-174) frequencies.

The province mandates that the system must work with any/all P25 equipment and infrastructure, such that any customer agency that wishes to use the network can purchase their favorite P25-compliant equipment and be assured it will function. Subscriber equipment must be vetted and authorized as part of the "Permitted Radio List" (available at the official web page, linked in the infobox at upper right).

This system carries communications for the official government agencies of the Province of Alberta, including Alberta Health Services Emergency Medical Services (AHSEMS), Fish & Wildlife, Alberta Sheriffs, and others. First responder agencies are the core "customers" of the system, with many municipalities establishing their public safety agencies on the system. Public works and other governmental entities (transit, waste management, etc) are also included on the system in some municipalities.
