									               Summary record of the Special SACFA meeting
                           held on 12.2.1998.
               --------------------------------------------

       Special SACFA meeting was held on 12/2/98 at Sanchar Bha-
van, New Delhi under the Chairmanship of Shri A.V.Gokak, Secre-
tary, DOT & Chairman (TC) to formulate guidelines to facilitate
selection of sites for SACFA clearance. A list of the partici-
pants is attached.

2.     The Chairman welcomed the members and recalled that in the
last Special SACFA meeting it was decided that SACFA members
would provide appropriate guidelines for clearance of sites as
related to their organisations for consolidation and finalisa-
tion. While giving these guidelines confidential/secret informa-
tion need not be disclosed. These guidelines would be helpful in
selecting the sites which would have a good chance of getting
approved by SACFA.    Accordingly, guidelines have been received
from various SACFA members. Based on various inputs, a consoli-
dated document has been prepared for consideration of SACFA.

3.     Wireless Adviser, thereafter, explained in brief contents
of the document. He indicated that the document broadly consisted
of three sections. Part A contained general instructions, Part B
contained guidelines as received from members as related to their
organisations and Part C contained broad principles as related to
processing of applications for SACFA clearances.

4.     The document was, then considered by the meeting in detail
and following decisions were taken:-

4.1     Part "A" : Notes were approved.

4.2     Part "B" : was approved with the following
                   modifications:

4.2.1            B.1: Airport Authority of India (AAI) :

            Appropriate details of civilian airports like
            location of    airports,their coordinates and height
            of their ARPs above mean sea level as given in
            Ministry of Civil Aviation Notification no. 288, are
            to be included in the guidelines given by the AAI.
            It was confirmed by the AAI member that these
            informations were not confidential.

4.3         Part C was approved with the following modications:

        -     In the 2nd line add " upto 1 GHz" in the end.

        -     In C1, after the word " distances" add "more than 2 kms
              from airfield boundary and "
        -     in C1(a), replace "above ground level(AGL)" by ARP
              elevation"

        -     In C1 (b), replace "4-30 m "   by "4-20 m" and add
                  Army in the list

            -     In C1(c), replace "30" by " 20"

            -     In C2 in the 1st line add "and any of
                  navigational aids as mentioned in Part 2 of page B1
                  at the end.

            -     In C2(a), in 1st line, replace "AGL" by "ARP" and
                  in 4th line, after the word "building" add "provided
                  height does not exceeed 20m above ARP elevation".

            -     Delete C2(b)

        -         C2(c) be renumbered as C2(b) and replace "30" by "20"
                  in the 1st line.

4.4       Members were also of the opinion that local level coor-
dination by the applicants may, substantially help the clearance
process. In this context, Wireless Adviser informed that Region-
al Advisory Committees on siting existed throughout the country
and advantage could be taken of these fora for achieving local
level coordination.

4.2.2            B.5: Department of Space (DOS).

                The details of locations of DOS stations, focal points
                as given by DOS in their guidelines are to be included
                in the guidelines.

4.2.3           B-13: Doordarshan.

                           Following indent be added in the end:

            -         mobile links for coverage of OB, locations
                      of which could be discussed with the local
                      D.D.Kendra heads.

5.      It was decided that the guidelines would be modified in
accordnace with the decisions taken in the meeting and would be
circulated to all the SACFA members for comments, if any, within
15 days. Thereafter these would be circulated.

6.     The Chairman also pointed out that WPC & SACFA operations
would be computerised with the appropriate technical and finan-
cial assistance. Digitised maps are available with Survey of
India and adoption of these maps in the work of SACFA would
further streamline the process of site clearance.

7.     Dr.Mahesh Chandra of NIC told the meeting that a proposal
for establishing 'Geographical Information System' with six
-figure coordinates of a location has been submitted to WPC for
approval. Role of NIC will be to establish the system based on
digitised maps available from Survey of India and make it avail-
able to SACFA and WPC for a period of three years. The cost of
this project is likely to be Rs.2.2 Crores. This does not include
backlog data entries. If approval in principle for this project
is given NIC will start working    on it.

7.1    The Chairman agreed for the project in principle and asked
WPC to process the case further.

8.      Wireless Adviser informed the meeting that 10 SACFA mem-
bers have acquired E-Mail facility and as such siting applica-
tions could be sent to them electronically. Other SACFA Members
were urged to acquire this facility at the earliest so that
applications could be sent to them also electronically to over-
come difficulties of physically sending the applications.

8.1     The member from Rlys requested SACFA Sectt. to send them
brief for the meetings also electronically which was agreed to.

9.     Wireless Adviser informed the meeting that the next Pleni-
potentiary Conference of the ITU will be held in Oct./Nov.1998
and requested SACFA members to send their proposals for the
Conference to the WPC Wing at the earliest so that further action
could be taken for finalising Indian proposals to the Conference.
He said that a formal communication in this regard will be sent
to all SACFA members in due course. This was agreed to.

    The   meeting   came to an and with a vote   of   thanks   to   the
chair.
               GUIDELINES TO FACILITATE SELECTION OF SITES
                           for SACFA Clearance.


A     Notes:
      -----

     (i)   The process of siting clearance and that of frequency
assignment are different. Hence, siting clearance should not be
construed as frequency clearance and vice-versa. While making
frequency assignments, technical examination, including coordina-
tion with concerned departments, as appropriate, are undertaken
to ensure electromagnetic compatibility with other wireless net-
works and as such frequency assignment process is not part of
SACFA procedures.

     (ii)   If an antenna installation is found to be causing
interference or obstruction to other existing wireless networks
or aircraft flying the same shall be dismantled immediately.

      (iii)     These guidelines do not replace SACFA procedures.

B    Following are the guidelines provided by various SACFA
members as related to their organisations to facilitate selection
of sites which may have good chance of getting approved:

                     Definitions

1. Basic strip:- A uniform strip of 150 meters on either side of
the centreline of the runway which extend 60 metres beyond each
extremity of the runway and or associated stop way of instrument
runway and 75 metres in case of non-instrument runway.

2. Take-off climb & Approach Surface:- The land enclosed in the
approach funnel of all runways where distances are measured from
each end of the runway along its extended centre line(see Annex-
ure-I).

3. Transition Area:- Transition area is an area which is below a
specified surface sloping upwards and outwards from the edge of
the approach funnel and from the line originating at the end of
the inner edge of each approach area drawn parallel to the runway
centreline in the direction of landing and along the line at
right angle to the centre line of the runway.

4. Inner Horizontal Surface:- A horizontal surface of radius 4000
metres located from the aerodrome reference point, if the runway
length is less than 1525 metres and from the runway end, if the
runway length is 1525 metres or more. The I.H.S. may be of com-
posite pattern which may consist of two or more circular patterns
centred at different runway ends and then joined tangentially.

5. Conical Surface:- Conical Surface shall be projected upwards
and outwards from the periphery of I.H.S. upto a distance of 6100
metres from the A.R.P./nearest runway end.

6. Outer Horizontal Surface:- The Outer horizontal surface shall
extend from the periphery of conical surface upto a distance of
15240 metres from the ARP.

7. Aerodrome Reference Point:- It is designated point which is
established in the horizontal plane at or near the geo-metric
centre of the landing area.

8. Elevation or Reduced Level:- It is a vertical distance      of a
point or a level on or affixed to the surface of the earth     meas-
ured from mean sea level.

Description of communication/Navigational facilities:-

1. VOR/TVOR/DVOR:-V.H.F. Omni Radio Range (VOR), Terminal V.H.F.
Omni Radio Range (TVOR) and Doppler V.H.F. Omni Radio Range
operating in the VHF band of frequencies 112 to 118.0MHz radiate
signals whereby an aircraft with the help of an instrument in
its cockpit when tuned to the ground equipment frequency automat-
ically gets his direction with respect to the facility. This
helps an aircraft to navigate on a predetermined course or to
home to an airport served by the facility.
2. ILS:- It is an abbreviation for "Instrument Landing System".
It serves to help an aircraft to make a safe landing on the
runway served by the ILS in condition of poor visibility. It
comprises of the following component facilities:-

(i) Localiser:- This facility radiates VHF signals which when
picked up by an aircraft, guide it onto the centre line of the
runway in the horizontal plane. Normally situated about 305
metres from the runway end.

(ii) Glide Path:- This facility radiates UHF (Ultra High Frequen-
cy) signals. It is normally situated about 275 metres to 305
metres from the runway threshold and offset about 122 metres to
137 metres from the centreline of the runway. This provides the
glide angle information to a landing aircraft with the help
of an instrument in the cockpit which when tuned to the glide
path frequency indicates whether the aircraft is flying up/down
along the correct glide angle.

(iii) Outer Marker/Outer Locator:- Outer Marker facility operat-
ing on 75 MHz in the VHF band is normally installed along the
extended centreline of the runway at a distance between 3.5 and 6
nautical miles( 1 nautical mile-1853 metres)

  It produces radiation     pattern to indicate to the landing
aircraft the predetermined distance from the threshold along the
I.L.S. glide path.

 (i) ASR- It is as radar facility serving an aerodrome to scan
the air traffic within 50 to 60 nautical miles of the aerodrome.

(ii)ARSR/SSR- Air Routes Surveillance Radar is a high power long
range radar covering a distance of 200 nautical miles approx. It
scans air traffic to a larger distance than ASR.

4. Communication/Navigational Facilities:-

(i) Microwave Link- It is a radio facility whereby mostly radar
intelligence is carried to the Air Traffic Control Display site.

(ii) Extended Range VHF- It is a VHF two way air-ground communi-
cation facility employing high power VHF transmitter. The normal
VHF range of 150 to 200 nautical miles is extended to about 300
nautical miles.

(iii) UHF Link:- A radio relay facility operating in Ultra   High
Frequency Band.

(iv) Beacons:- These are radio transmitters operating in the MF
band from 200 to 400 KHz radiating omni directionally in the
horizontal plane. An aircraft equipped with a suitable cockpit
instrument can get its direction automatically with respect to
it.
(v) Remote Receivers:- These are radio receiving stations (HF
Band) installed at remote sites away from factory/industrial
areas to avoid interference like man-made static etc.
B.1.2      Appropriate details of civilian airports like location
           of airports, their coordinates and height of their ARPs
           above mean sea level as given in Ministry of Civil
           Aviation Notification no. 288, are given in appendix-1
           to these guidelines which may also be taken into account
           while selecting a site.   These are subject to revision
           from time to time.

B 1.3     Broad guidelines in respect of maximum height of mast
with reference to the distance from the airport reference point
(ARP) which can be considered for permission are as follows:

   Distance from ARP            Mast height not more than
  -----------------              ---------------------
a) less than 5.5 kms                45 mtrs above ARP

b)    between 5.5 & 7.5 kms         45 mtrs above ARP + distance
                                    more than 5.5 kms divided by 20

c)      More than 7.5 kms           150 mtrs above ARP

Actual permitted height may be lesser than the above mentioned
heights depending upon the location of the site i.e. its distance
and azimuth from ARP

B 2  Air HQ
     ------
          It is not possible to define a concrete policy on the
subject, as around airfield there is a defined local flying area
where the height restrictions of flying depend upon the type of
aircraft flying at that airfield however, the following broad
guidelines are offered for selection of sites:

i) Up to a distance of          -Antenna heights up to 4 mts above
   7 kms from ARP                ground level (AGL) may be permitted

                                -Antenna of height more than 4 m AGL
                                 or of any height on roof top needs
                                 specific clearance.

ii)     Beyond 7 kms from ARP    -Antenna heights up to 20 m AGL   may
                                  be permitted.

                                 -Antenna heights more than 20 m AGL
                                  whether installed on ground or on
                                  roof top need specific clearance.

-     All antennas are to be painted in orange and white bands.
-     All antennas above 45 m are to be provided with day/night
      markings as given below :-

        i) Orange and white painted bands of 5 m width
       ii) Guy wires, where used, should have 60 cm dia plastic/
           fibre glass orange and white balls.
      iii) A red light of 1600 cp blinking at the rate of 20 times
           per minute is to be installed on top of the antenna.
                 Whether antenna is higher than 45 m, two red lights are
                 to be provided at every 45 m with above mentioned red
                 blinking light on top of the antenna.(e.g. an antenna
                 115m would be provided with a pair of red light at 45 m,
                 another pair at 90 m and a blinking red light at the top
                 of the antenna.
