CANADA DMR Net - Trans CANADA DMR Club Certificate

Canada's DMR Net Award
effective date/start date
introduction: JANUARY 03, 2016


Wandering around the shack at 9:00 ET 21:00 (04:00 PT 16:00 UTC) 2016, worked all the DMR Canadian provinces, nothing to do? QSY to Talkgroup #302 Canada and check into the
Trans Canada DMR Net
The Canadian NET starts 2016 operates weekly on Sunday evenings to promote and encourage reliable communications from coast to coast and to help all amateurs improve their stations and to share friendship and good fellowship, with the focus on ARES messages.
Trans Canada DMR Net Certificate - just for checking in
certificate of membership or merit (Artwork by Sandra)

If there is an interest in making available a certificate, please let me know.

I'm not sure of the requirements to qualify for the certificate or for that matter, who would make that decision (Update: resolved as per VA3AGV.com)

The original prerequisite for the certificate was that one had to call in at least 8 consecutive times to the Trans Canada DMR Net

The artwork can be handled in one of two ways should that be decided.1.) One method would be to simply email the certificate, with the persons name and call sign, with the expectation that the recipient would print it out on their own printer. I see this as being a free service.2.) The second option would be the same except I would print it out and mail it to the recipient, this for a fee of $5. So feedback is always good, let me know your thoughts either by email or on the air.(As always comment below)
  • Trans Canada DMR Net 8 consecutive times CheckIn
    • (introduction #01 - January 03, 2016) (1 Certificate)
  • Work all the DMR Canadian provinces (1 Certificate)

Best regard

Ham radio trivia question of the day

Which famous ham radio operator was also the voice over narrator of the old Untouchables television series?

Hint: while ham radio was his avocation, another type of radio was what made him famous.

Hint2: With regard to his vocation, CW played a big role.

Display Screen and Hand-Held Devices 5 Year Limited Exemption Review

The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) recognizes the importance of creating an effective regulatory environment that accommodates the use of new and innovative vehicle technologies which promote economic growth and prosperity in Ontario - however road safety remains a top priority. For the past 15 years, Ontario's roads have been among the safest in North America and MTO continuously strives to maintain and improve on this leading safety record.

On January 1, 2018, specific time-limited exemptions for the holding and use of two-way radios outlined in Ontario Reg. 366/09 - Display Screens and Hand-Held Devices are set to expire. These exemptions currently allow the following to hold or use a two-way radio:
o Certain public function employees (eg., bus drivers);
o Commercial drivers;
o Amateur radio operators (eg., an Industry Canada-licensed operator which could include a commercial driver).
