Data for Canada includes information on AM, FM and TV stations. This database also includes data from the United States within the border area. US data is normally how the US has reported a facility to Canada under international agreement and may not necessarily reflect the actual facility. For more precise information on US facilities, use the FCC data under the 'United States (AM/FM/TV)' category. We also have amateur radio call license information.
REC retrieves data from Industry Canada's broadcast spectrum and amateur radio databases. This update is performed weekly on Saturdays. This data includes all broadcast stations regulated by the Canadian Radio and Television Commission (CRTC) and technically administrated by Industry Canada. This includes both CBC, commercial and low-power broadcast stations. Includes all regular and club amateur radio call signs. (At this time, call sign is the only entry method for Canadian amateur radio records.)
data type per request:
Enter the call sign of the station. There is no need to enter suffixes (e.g. -FM, FM-1, etc.) as if there are multiple entries, you will see a list of call signs to choose from.
Industry Canada does not put all stations into the database by their call signs. Sometimes, they will use a 'banner' like using 630CJET instead of just CJET for example. If you can't find a station, you may need to try by community or in border areas, try searching the United States FCC data first.
Enter the amateur radio call sign. Do not enter any 'portable' designators (such as VE3AAA/1, etc.) Partial entires will return a list of up to 50.
Enter the community name in the first field and the two-letter postal province abbreviation in the second field. If you are unsure of the spelling, you can enter the first three letters of a community name and it will try to find it for you. Note that in border areas, you will eventually see a dialscape (list of stations by frequency/channel) for the FCC database but if you scroll down, you will see the Industry Canada dialscape.
To show a listing of amateurs in a particular community, enter the community name and two-letter province abbreviation in the second field. Change the drop-down from 'Broadcast' to 'Amateur' and click [Search].
Enter the name or partial last name (surname) of the licensee as shown in the Industry Canada licensing records for both broadcast and amateur.
