  Subject: Industry Canada Response to RAC Recommendations on Morse Code and Related Matters.

  Industry Canada has analyzed the responses to the public consultation called under Canada Gazette Notice DGRB-003-04.  A summary of the comments received and the individual replies are now available on the Industry Canada web site at:  http://strategis.ic.gc.ca/epic/internet/insmt-gst.nsf/en/sf08280e.html

  Amateurs should note that while the responses heavily favoured deletion of the Morse Qualification as a requirement for access to the HF bands, Industry Canada still has to make and announce a decision on Morse retention or deletion.  Until a decision to delete Morse is announced, amateurs who do not hold the Morse Qualification may not operate on the HF bands below 30 MHz.
