Thank you for invaluable input yet again, we have come to rely on your relevant interpretations of [strikeout]scripture[/strikeout] regulations, so much so we would be lost without you. Considering there are so many other regulations dealing with other spectrums I'm sure we can count on you to educate us in those fields as well. Thank you for alerting me to the vanity of my certification application I was planning on sending Industry Canada, you saved me $1250 and the great embarrassment of certain rejection.It doesn't matter what technique you use, the equipment you are configuring/modifying isn't certified for use in the FRS / GMRS unlicensed spectrum in Canada.
It has always been possible to use commercial / not made for purpose gear in the amateur bands. Holders of an Advanced license can even design, build, and operate their own transmitting equipment.
But the reverse is *not* necessarily true. Commercially produced transmitting gear specifically made for the amateur radio service, that doesn't already carry certification for other Canadian radio services, can't be made "certified" by an individual such as yourself no matter what you do to it.
This is so self-evident that I'm not sure why we are bothering to discuss it.
