Subject: Callsigns Available List Now Online
Effective 1 April, 2000 Radio Amateurs of Canada in
cooperation with Industry Canada and Information Gateway
Services (IGS) have instituted a new service for Canadian
radio amateurs with the inauguration of a Canadian Amateur
Radio Call Signs Available List, in both official languages,
on the RAC web site, http://www.rac.ca/acl/
The Call Signs Available List shows all the call signs
available for each prefix authorized for regular call sign
issue. The list is updated automatically each business day.
When a call sign is issued, simultaneously it is deleted
from the Call Signs Available List and transferred to the
Canadian Amateur Radio Call Sign Data Base.
The Canadian Amateur Radio Call Signs Available List and the
Canadian Amateur Radio Call Sign Data Base are official
Industry Canada data bases. RAC cannot make changes to either
data base; RAC only displays the information on the RAC web
Comments on the Call Signs Available List should be directed
to the webmaster, Doug Frame, VE3JDF, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Queries on a particular call sign should be directed to the
Industry Canada Amateur Radio Service Centre at:
