I have a query that's running just fine until I try to add a GROUP BY clause. I have no formal SQL training and have tried a number of approaches but cannot figure out how to get the GROUP BY to work. Is there a DBA or SQL Jock out there who can help me with a GROUP BY on a query involving coalesce? Much appreciated.

You're not using any aggregate functions that I can see so why are you grouping?  If your intent is to eliminate duplicate rows then just use DISTINCT.

SELECT DISTINCT <column list>
FROM HAR_CALLS
LEFT OUTER JOIN CALL_DISABILITY
    ON HAR_CALLS.CALL_UUID = CALL_DISABILITY.CALL_UUID
WHERE HAR_CALLS.START_DATE >= N'10/01/2012 00:00:00'
   AND HAR_CALLS.START_DATE <= N'10/31/2012 12:59:59'
