On June 28, 2007 Industry Canada released its long-awaited new policy and procedures on towers and antenna siting, entitled CPC-2-0-03, Radiocommunication and Broadcasting Antenna Systems, Issue 4, June 2007. The new procedures will come into effect on 1 January 2008. Radio amateurs should note that until then, the current CPC-2-0-03, Issue 3, June 24, 1995,remains in effect. Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) has been an active participant in the national review of antenna tower policies initiated by Industry Canada in March 2003, and in the subsequent many and varied spectrum-user stakeholders' meetings that reviewed and commented on the initial draft policy. The new CPC-2-0-03 was released by the Department without a final review by tower proponents despite their requests. Therefore RAC is now analyzing the new tower policy and procedures and will describe their impact for the Amateur Service in an upcoming issue of The Canadian Amateur. Radio amateurs are invited to read the new policy at: http://strategis.ic.gc.ca/epic/site/smt-gst.nsf/en/h_sf01702e.html and to comment to Jim Dean, VE3IQ and Richard Ferch, VE3KI/VE3IAY at ve3iq@rac.ca and ve3iay@rac.ca, respectively.
