Hello Folks,

I'm wondering if it is possible that I could register a frequency with Industry Canada, and how much it would cost to go about doing so. (In the 136 - 174 mhz VHF range.) I am not interested in getting an "Amateur Radio" license.

I would like to use it for biking and hiking with the family in the woods out on the local trails etc.

On their registration page, There are a few fields that I am unsure to what to fill in , or if obtaining a license for a use such as this is even permitted.
(https://sd.ic.gc.ca/pls/engdoc_anon/account_create$profile_request.create_profile)

Fields That I am unsure of:

"Web Profile Description (for your own use)"
"Describe the intended use of your radio systems (e.g., taxi, construction, etc.)"

Thanks,
Jd

Doesn't Canada have frs/gmrs/cb or similar? No way any govt will give someone a dedicated freq when there are already systems in place for public comms.

Why post in amateur

Quote: "I am not interested in getting an "Amateur Radio" license." So why post in an amateur radio related thread?

To the original OP maybe in the future you can say where you are located. Now, on to your query. You do Not need a licence to have and transmit on Gmrs or Frs. Only difference up here is that one cannot set up a repeater. I also believe and maybe somebody else can chime in here.You would go to a radio dealer who would sell you a radio or 2 in the band you want. There is a tiny slice for low power radios just after the 2M ham band and before Marine and Railways ie 151.000 They then give you the licence application to fill out as for the cost cant help there. Also be advised that you will be sharing this frequency with others in congested areas. This is what I would do if I were you. Locate a Motorola dealer then email your question to them. They will tell you the proper procedure
Hope this helps
Thomas
