There is a reciprocal agreement between the United States and Canada that allows
us to operate in each other's country without any licensing or notification
John and I wanted to see if we could get our Canadian licenses anyway.
We made arrangements to take the test in Kingston, Ontario a couple of months before the trip.
Our Canadian VE, Bernard Bardsall, VE2NB, administered the tests from his home.
First you are given a basic exam followed by 12 wpm code test and then the Advanced exam.
Much to our surprise, we passed. About a month later our licenses came in the mail.
We registered our station location as Sept-iles so we would be issued VE2 calls.
