Re: Canadians: Station License or not?
Sorry ......but you do need a "Authorization" in effort to legally use a VHF Marine Transceiver (for a pleasure boat) anywhere in Canada as a Canadian. This Authorization is in the form of an "Operator's Certificate" called a ROC-M. It will also let you use a SSB maritime Radio etc. The Canucks want their mariners (even pleasure boaters) to not "Ball up" the Maritime Spectrum because lives depend on it.
