Codan Communications' MT-4E radio system set to cover Wood Buffalo National Park
Wood Buffalo National Park will soon be host to Codan’s MT-4E radio system. The national park is Canada’s largest and second largest in the world, second only to Northeast Greenland National Park. It covers an enormous 44,807 square kilometres, which is a greater landmass than Switzerland.
The solution being installed consists of a network of VHF and UHF repeaters driven by both AC and solar power, covering twelve sites across the park. Currently, the system boasts 100% mobile coverage along the two main roads as well as more than 90% portable coverage.
Year-round, this coverage will strengthen safety communications across the park.
