I have never heard of anyone being cited or even asked.
I have communicated w/ Canadian CG and never asked to identify myself other than w boat name.
Same here…

We both have Restricted Radiotelephone Operators Licenses -- got them back before VHF -- when SOS was on 2182 and ship to shoreside telephone was ATT a long way away. Our boats have all had station licenses -- we've gone foreign in all of them, including the circumnav.


I can't recall anyone ever asking to see either license, but the law's the law.

My Restricted Operator Certificate (Maritime) [ROC(M)] is issued by Industry Canada, the ministry that manages the radio frequency spectrum.

Unlike many other coast guards around the world, the CCG is not a military or law enforcement service, meaning that it does not have the mandate to enforce Canadian law.

As a CCG guy I know says "we are here to help, not to hinder".
