Generally, ground ACARS units are either government agencies such as the Federal Aviation Administrationan airline operations headquarters, or, for small airlines or general aviation, a third-party subscription service.

VHF communication is line-of-sight propagation and the typical range is up to nautical miles at high altitudes.
