MARINE VHS Restrictions Letter to Transport Canada

MARINE VHS Restrictions Letter to Transport Canada

Our Marine Channels rules are so strict re license requirements to use a Marine Radio here and rightfully so. BUT, I sent a letter that Transport Canada open talks with Canada's CRTC to open a SINGLE Marine VHF Channel that can be used in May Day May Day and Pan-Pan-Pan conditions for use by a leisure boat user with certain call-conditions.

So many new boats are equipped with Marine VHS Radios and being able to use ONE Emergency channel (not 16 or 9) that can broadcast to nearbye boats for help where life or sinking may be immanent. It's common sense in an emergency on the water I feel.


I received confirmation my email letter was rec'd and it's content will be reviewed by the powers. I will update once I receive their reply.
