Abstract
The Canada – United States border is almost 9000km long. The area where first responders from both countries will interact through wireless radio systems is defined as a 60 km wide band that contains 140,000 radio licenses are related to fire, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), police, coast guard and other units. A complete geographical radio coverage plot of the border region was produced, taking into consideration the maximum operational range for a good voice quality. The radio coverage plot is a mosaic of more than 7000 color-coded images representing first responder fixed radio base station and repeater sites from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from the Pacific to the Beaufort Sea.
