Some boats have been sent back to Canadian Waters because they too believed that it was all folklore. There was no concern about Station Licences on pleasure craft before September 11 2001 and a proposal to make an reciprocal exemption was xnayed. With a callsign, the feds have something to go on when a vessel enters their territory. Make sense?

What is the particular "shared" part of the Great Lakes you refer to?
