Canadian Amateurs on 600 Metres Industry Canada has accepted an RAC proposal whereby selected Canadian radio amateurs would be permitted to operate in the vicinity of 500 kHz. These amateur operations would support Canada's efforts to action a proposal on the agenda of the 2011 World Radio Conference (WRC2011) which, if adopted, would create an amateur allocation in the 600-meter band. Industry Canada have authorized RAC to recommend amateurs who would be licensed to operate in the 504 to 509 kHz band with a maximum power of 20 watts ERP and bandwidth up to 1 kHz. Stations operating in this band would be technically operating under Special Developmental Licenses although they would all be radio amateurs. Distinct call signs would be used and the licenses would be renewable annually subject to the amateur demonstrating the research he has carried out. More information will follow shortly in the pages of TCA or via subsequent bulletins. Bryan Rawlings VE3QN/VE2QNN Radio Amateurs of/du Canada, Inc.
