Yes, accounts in our system require a Canadian Amateur Radio callsign or they risk being deleted. See below for valid exceptions to this rule.

As licensed Amateur's we can verify each other by our callsign using the information in the Industry Canada Amateur Radio database.

When buying and selling used equipment it's important that we know who we are dealing with and that no one is anonymous.

The community of members can provide feedback and 'bad' members will be blacklisted, all ads feature a button in the lower right corner titled Report this ad. We rely on our community to report fraudulent behavior.

NOTE There are exceptions to our callsign rule if you contact the site administrator for permission and instructions.

Exceptions can include the following

  • Other radio related enthusiasts for example Shortwave listeners.
  • Family members of a deceased Amateur Radio operator (a Silent Key) wishing to sell equipment for an estate sale.
