On Saturday, 28 August, 2004, Industry Canada published Canada Gazette Notice DGRB-003-04 - Consultation on "Recommendations from Radio Amateurs of Canada to Industry Canada Concerning Morse Code and Related Matters", and invited comments. Amateurs have sixty days in which to respond. The RAC Proposal deals with the WRC-2003 decisions concerning Morse as a mandatory qualification for HF operation in the Amateur Service. RAC has recommended that Industry Canada delete the mandatory requirement for Morse testing but leave it as a voluntary qualification as it may be required for reciprocal operation in those countries retaining a Morse requirement. Amateurs should address comments to Industry Canada as directed in the Notice. RAC recommends that Canadian amateurs endorse this proposal. Amateurs with questions for RAC should direct them to their regional RAC Director. The Notice is available at: http://strategis.ic.gc.ca/epic/internet/insmt-gst.nsf/en/sf06456e.html
