Submit a licence application for GPS active repeater stations
Licence applications for GPS active repeater stations can be submitted using the Microwave application option.
Please follow the data entry guidelines provided.
For more details refer the CPC 2-5-01 Licensing Procedure for Global Positioning System (GPS) Active Repeater Stations available at the following link http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/sf09969.htmlSpectrum Direct Data Entry Guidelines for GPS Active repeaters:
- The station's location must be the same as that of the GPS receiver antenna.
- The above ground height value of the antenna structure shall correspond to the height of the structure upon which the highest antenna (usually the receiving antenna) is installed.
- Transmit and receive frequency is 1575.42 MHz. Enter as a single TX/RX type record.
- Total TX attenuation loss corresponds to that of the cable connecting the indoor unit with the transmitting antenna.
- Total RX attenuation loss corresponds to that of the cable connecting the outdoor and indoor units.
- Radio frequency output power is that of the amplifier feeding the transmitting antenna (indoor unit).
- Select the GPS active repeater model number from the list of radios available in Spectrum Direct. The model number of these devices will have the prefix "(AR)". If the model number is not available (i.e. it is a new model), create a new radio data entry by using the "(AR) GPSRKL1 1.5G" model as an example. Note that code "(AR)" is required to be entered prior to the model number to indicate that the station is an "active repeater."
- Bandwidth: Corresponds to the frequency response of the repeater between the -3 dB points, which istypically that of the bandpass filter of the outdoor unit.
- Select the "omni generic" antenna model from the list of antennas available in Spectrum Direct; enter the antenna gain in dBi.
- TX antenna gain: The gain (in dBi) of the indoor transmitting antenna.
- RX antenna gain: The gain (in dBi) of the outdoor GPS receiving antenna (without considering the preamplifier).
- TX/RX antenna polarization: Circular (right).
- TX/RX antenna azimuth: default to 0 degrees.
- The height of the TX antenna (above ground level) is that of the indoor transmitting antenna.
- The height of the RX antenna (above ground level) is that of the outdoor GPS signal receiving antenna.
- TX elevation angle: default to -90 degrees.
- RX elevation angle: default to +90 degrees.
- Unfaded received signal level: -130 dBm.
- Propagation availability: 99%.
- No international coordination is required.
- Link station name can be defaulted to "GPS" and circuit length to 1 km. In the Link Station Call Sign Management field, always select "Other".
