Industry Canada issues its first license on the new 60 meter developmental band, VX9GHD to VE3FI Russ Hemphill today. Canadians have been waiting for 3 years for this new opportunity to join the USA, and Britain. This band is badly needed for Emergency Communications, when conditions on 40 and 80 are not suitable for transmitting or receiving traffic. This license is for one year, then it will be open to all canadian amateurs using their own call sign.
