Can anyone quote the Industry Canada policy (i.e. Radio Information
Circular RIC-9, etc.) that states a Canadian amateur must identify
with a / if operating from a different call area than what his/her
prefix indicates?


One thing that became apparent in many QSOs this weekend, though, is
that some of you may be under the impression that Canadian prefixes
don't indicate geography. This is not true. Unlike the U.S., we must
still identify if we are outside of our home call area. So if you know
VE4 is Manitoba, and work a VE4 with no portable suffix, he's in
