This paper presents a view of a vessel traffic system in a portion of the St. Lawrence-Great Lakes Waterway, consisting of the St. Lawrence River, the Great Lakes, and connecting channels which form a 2,234 mile (3260 km) seacoast from the Atlantic Ocean to the heart of the North American continent. Emphasis is on international management, sector control, VHF calling and working frequencies, legal justification of special frequency allocation by the Federal Communications Commission and its application in a current active vessel traffic control system. The paper deals with a working vessel traffic control system -- its growth, management, current status and future technology.
