Re: Canadians: Station License or not?


I believe it is understood that a Canadian requires a Station License to operate a boat with a radio installed in US waters. This is in addition to your Radio Operator's Cert.

Here's the Industry Canada FAQ excerpted above:

Licensing Exemptions - Spectrum Management and Telecommunications

Here's a link to the industry Canada site where you apply for the license:

MMSI Application Forms (Annexes) - Spectrum Direct

I am still trying to determine if it is worth the risk to go across the line spray painted on the surface of Lake Ontario without said license.
