I just got the following in my email inbox and after a quick call to Bill to ensure that I could share it with you… Here it is…
I note that a search of the spectrum direct utility reveals that Industry Canada has not issued a license for this group, or any other, to operate on this frequency. It is allocated for Amateur Radio use.
Throughout Canada, our members make use of this channel. It is not acceptable for non amateur users to transmit on channel.
Enforcement action is required. Please provide an update to this situation today in advance of a formal written request by the Radio Amateurs of Canada for enforcement. Our written request will demand the seizure of the equipment being operated illegally.

Bill replied to me and cc’d IC
There you have it. And I’m not being sarcastic…. A response from RAC (within about 16 hours and most of that was in overnight time) so… I’m impressed…
Thanks to Bill (on behalf of RAC) for his speedy reply and quick response on our behalf.
