The following frequencies are amended or converted to 8.33 kHz spacing:
Wick Tower/Approach/Information 119.700 becomes 119.705due to 8.33 kHz spacing restrictions, we are unable to replicate this. Therefore the existing frequency is retained as it is the closest usable frequency.
There is no local documentation; this is considered incorperated, there is no other notification of this change.

For this weekend's Cross the Pond event, in order to manage the increased workload in the North sector group, a temporary arrangement is made to allow for the split of the London North sector on the date specified above:
LON_N_CTR (AC North)
West may be split into 2 positions: AC North (133.700) and AC North Sea (128.125). AC North remains the parent sector under the rules determining opening order and controller priority.
(Callsign “London Control”, Login: LON_N_CTR) is responsible for airspace West of a line passing approximately GOLES-NAPEX as shown above. Their top-down responsibilities reflect the airspace of this sector (i.e. Manchester, Liverpool, etc.) in the absence of other controllers.
AC North Sea
(Callsign “London Control”, Login: LON_NE_CTR) is responsible for airspace East of a line passing approximately GOLES-NAPEX as shown above. Their top-down responsibilties reflect their airspace (i.e. Norwich) in the absence of other controllers.
This procedure does not alter the staffing permissions as defined in the UK Division Policy or GRP.
