"We are hopeful New Brunswick will recognize the value of amateur radio operators to our province by eliminating the ban on mobile radio operations. The lifting of the ban will enhance public safety and bring New Brunswick in line with the rest of Canada." stated Len Morgan VE9MY Deputy Director for the Atlantic Region.
