Radio Comms question

I'm wondering if there are unique issues or problems with radio comms (solar flares etc.) being so far north..

Other than geographical limitations, no.

As you would expect, radio is pretty weak inside tunnels, but other than that the railroad generally has pretty good radio reception.
