Abstract
In July of 1976 the Canadian Department of Communications (DOC) and the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) agreed on the establishment of a joint working group to investigate various aspects of bilateral coordination. It was found that there was insufficient propagation data to determine reliably either the interference levels that would be encountered, or the applicability of the existing FCC R-6602 propagation curves, in the region of the Great Lakes. Accordingly, it was decided to conduct a joint study to assess, and if possible resolve, the propagation issues. The report details that portion of the joint study for which DOC was responsible. Attention is confined to comparisons of observed field strengths in the Great Lakes area with those predicted by R-6602, and to an interpretation of the differences in terms of various paths and systems parameters.
