    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Question, probably the wrong place to ask, but...

I was looking through a pile of documentation the Rac's website, as well as IC's website. Everything that I've found leeds me to believe that as long as I have my basic operating ticket, i can use any of the frequencies listed as long as I'm not causing interference to other users, as well as not going below the 50 mhz region. (reference: http://www.rac.ca/regulatory/allband.htm). In terms of operating equipment it must remain within in the IC restrictions. (reference: http://www.ic.gc.ca/epic/site/smt-gst.nsf/en/sf01226e.html)

As well the frequencies can not be used for commercial purposes, but if I want to just get a few radios for fun, and as long as everyone's using them has their certificate, we can operate inside the designated frequencies.

I know this is a very watered down readers digest version of the hobby, but could someone clarify if what i've stated is wrong?
