Being new to Ham radio, I have a question. Licensed as a "Tech" in the US, I travel to BC once a year. What will I need to do, if anything to operate (2 meter) in BC for the 3 or 4 days I will be there?

Thanks and 73!

You need not do anything other than to append VE7 to the end of your call. Canada and the USA have reciprocal operating privileges and our Basic qualification allows full access to VHF/UHF.

While in BC check out the Vancouver IRLP (internet repeater linking project) nodes. We might just have a QSO.

  Charles, I am going to be traveling to Vancouver on
vacation this summer.  I read your note on eham about
the Internet Linking project some of their repeaters
evidently use.  Do you have a URL to look at?

  Thanx es 73s  Mike ka3jjz@erols.com

Go to www.K7PP.com and there is a link there for the IRLP part of the system. In the IRLP section you will find a link to "IRLP Active Node Status" Click on that and a page will load showing all nodes, there location, if they are active or not and some have clickable links to coverage maps.
