* There is an automatic mutual agreement between the United States and Canada, so there is no need to apply for authorization. Simply sign your U.S. call, followed by a slash and the Canadian ID of the letter/number. When a channel issues an amateur service licence under the privileges granted by the Government of Canada or an amateur service permit granted by another country with which the United States has a multilateral or bilateral agreement, an indicator consisting of the corresponding number of letters indicating the location of the station must appear in the announcement of the station identification. See 47 C.F.R. § 97.119 1. It should be noted that the FCC no longer issues reciprocal authorizations for foreign amateur licenses. See Rapport and Order, In the Matter of Biennial Regulatory Review — Amendment of Parts 0, 1, 13, 22, 24, 26, 27, 80, 87, 90, 95, 97, and 101 of the Commission`s Rules to Facilitate the Development and Use of the Universal Licensing System in the Wireless Telecommunications Services, WT Docket 998-20, 13 FCC Rcd 21027 (1998). As a result, the mutual operating license does not require additional authorization from the FCC, except in this case. The reciprocal operating power is valid until the date of expiry of the amateur service licence from abroad. Mutual operation in a location where the amateur radio service is regulated by the FCC must comply with Part 97 of the FCC and International Telecommunication Union Radio Regulations. The operator`s privileges are those that have been approved by the government from abroad, but do not exceed those of the higher-class operator FCC Amateur. Canadian citizens holding an amateur service licence issued by the Government of Canada and citizens of countries holding an amateur service licence issued by a country with which the United States has reciprocal undertaking agreements are entitled, under paragraph 47 C.F.R.
97.107, to be the control operator of an amateur station broadcasting from a place where amateur radio service is regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).1. . .
