INTRODUCTION

Amateur radio operators may establish their amateur radio stations anywhere in Canada. Installations may be subject to environmental and aeronautical assessments.

There are no limitations as to the number of stations that may be established.

Amateur radio operators who are holders of the Basic and Advanced qualifications may also install and operate:

  • club stations
  • automatic repeater stations (in band)
  • transmitters or RF amplifiers that are neither professionally designed nor commercially manufactured for use in the amateur service
  • remotely controlled fixed stations, including the use of radio links

SUPPLEMENT

The 6 meter band has unique propagation characteristics that suit the operation of beacon stations. This band has the largest number of beacon stations operated by amateurs. Beacon stations transmit signals intended for one way communication. Six meter band enthusiasts monitor for these transmissions to help them determine whether or not sky wave propagation is possible to specific regions.

The Northern California DX Foundation and the International Amateur Radio Union operate an International Beacon Network in certain HF bands. Search for NCDXF/IARU Beacon Network on the internet.
