This document supports the harmonisation of the ATC service using UHF to be provided to military aircraft operating as OAT and to non-8.33 kHz State aircraft flying as GAT/IFR within the airspace where the carriage of 8.33 kHz radios is mandatory. When used in the GAT/IFR environment it shall be considered as a transitional means and within the capacity and safety limits of the ATM system.
EUROCONTROL Guidelines on the use of UHF for ATC
This EUROCONTROL document describes operating procedures and best practices and summarises implementation options that are required to ensure the harmonisation of the provision of Air Traffic Control using UHF as envisaged in the EC Regulation on Air-Ground Voice Channel Spacing. This guidance is essential to reach a determined level of ATC service when using UHF resources.
