Not true for Canadians visiting in the US. FCC Rules Part 97.119(g)
requires Canadians to put the portable designation after their home
callsign: " For an amateur service license granted by the Government of
Canada, however, the indicator must be included after the call sign."
Likewise, the Canadian regulations (RBR-4, Section 9.2) require visiting US
amateurs to put the portable designation after the call sign. This only
applies to visitors from the US, not to visitors from other countries.
Note all..... that regardless of ARRL or other nations, usa fcc says
correct portable designation comes BEFORE the licensed callsign...........
like XX9/K4VUD. Against old practice, I know, but true.
Now if only LOTW and DXCC records would always agree with this fcc usage!
