active 2018-12-06 Southend (EGMC) Frequency Update

Recommended Posts

Chris Pawley

Effective 06 December 2018

The following frequencies are amended or converted to 8.33 kHz spacing:

Southend Approach 130.775 becomes 133.780 due 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.

Southend Radar 132.450 becomes 132.455 due 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.

The Southend vMATS pt 2 will be updated in a coming cycle to reflect these changes..

      In contrast to precision approaches, non-precision approaches are at risk of failing to ensure correct tracking of the vertical path through altimetric calibration error. Should a plane make a non-precision approach with the wrong altimeter setting, they will fly the approach consistently too low or too high. Where (for example) an ILS approach is conducted, such an error is detrimental to ensuring separation in the intermediate approach but is corrected for in the final approach by ground based navigational equipment.
       
      In order to correct for any errors through altimetric calibration, approach controllers are instructed to issue the relevant QNH with the approach clearance for aircraft conducting a non-precision approach (including RNAV approaches)

      A new position Southend Director (EGMC_APP, 132.450) is available for us. This position serves as a split of Southend Radar (EGMC_R_APP, 130.775) during times of high workload and focusses on aircraft inbound to Southend. This allows the Radar controller to conduct the other duties of the combined approach unit. This position is particularly useful when SRAs are in use.
       
      The 2019/03 version of the UK Sectorfile contains these changes, and the relevant local documentation will be update in a coming update.
