In conjunction with path studies and/or frequency coordination, Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers are available for rental to determine latitude and longitude.
All units are shipped by Federal Express and must be returned in the same manner.
Coordinate System Conversion
Latitude and Longitude are defined by various datum’s or geographic ellipsoids. The FCC & FAA both use North American Datum (NAD) 83. Another Datum commonly used by surveyors is (NAD) 27. Different datum’s result in different answers in latitude and longitude at a specific point. Municipal maps, road surveys etc. in "state planar coordinates", are sometimes available with great accuracy in small to large urban areas. We support translation services for over six hundred (600) coordinate systems
If we are providing frequency coordination services there is no charge for coordinate translation, however we must know the datum originally utilized.
