FCC DA 18-980 Chinese BaoFeng Radio Ban Will Regulate Amateur Operators

FCC DA 18-980 Chinese BaoFeng Radio Ban Will Regulate Amateur Operators

In a bid to stop unlicensed individuals from transmitting and interfering on public service and land mobile frequencies, the FCC has issued a ruling that basically makes it illegal for the LICENSED Amateur radio...

The FCC has issued a Public Notice called an "FCC Enforcement Advisory," Number DA 18-980, dated 24 Sept 2018. It essentially makes worthless nearly all Chinese-made UHF/VHF ham radio handhelds imported into the country over nearly a decade that can also transmit outside the ham bands (which is nearly all of them). Watch this video for details and an interim update.

Distracted Driving in Canada: An Update - HIGHWAY TRAFFIC ACT - O. Reg. 366-09 Extended 2021

Ontario Temporary Exemption has been Extended until January 1, 2021

HIGHWAY TRAFFIC ACT - O. Reg. 366-09 - Amateur Radio Ontario Distracted Driving in Canada
For immediate release: December 15, 2017
http://wp.rac.ca/distracted-driving/


Distracted driving regulations continue to be an area of interest for many Canadian Radio Amateurs. These regulations are made and enforced by provincial governments and can vary considerably from province to province and over time. In Ontario, RAC Directors Allan Boyd, VE3AJB (Ontario North/East) and Phil McBride, VA3QR (Ontario South) have been working hard on this issue.

On December 15, 2017, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) announced that the current two-way radio exemption for “Amateur Radio operators and specified commercial, public transit, and public function drivers will be extended for a further three-years, effective January 1, 2018 until January 1, 2021.”

The update to the regulation can be found at https://www.ontario.ca/laws/regulation/r17475.

While we were hoping for a permanent exemption, this decision by the MTO ensures our continued ability to operate Amateur Radio apparatus while mobile. RAC will continue to press for a permanent exemption going forward.
