Welcome to The Trans Canada Net

2016 Highlights:

The TCN starts at 18:00 Z on Sundays and most Canadian Satutory Holidays

The main Trans Canada Net (TCN) focus is to provide a nation wide informal HF radio forum for Canadian radio amateurs.
However check-ins from other countries are welcomed as long as radio regulations are complied with.
To protect operators (including Canadians in the USA) from citation exposure USA located stations are only permitted
to check into the TCN on CW. This is because the USA FCC regulations do not permit voice transmissions on the 20M band below 14.150 MHz.

The net usually runs with 3 net control stations (NCS) strategically located across Canada to provide overlapping coverage
within the usual 20M HF propagation skip zone gaps.
Typically there are NCS operators located in Eastern, Central and Western Canada.

Currently, VA7TA is Western Net control and manager.

Grant, VA4GD handles the Central Canada NCS duties with back-up from
Mike, VE4BAE and Clarke, VE4MB when needed.
Grant developed the foundation for the TCN check-in database which at the time of this writing has grown to about 10,000 records.

Dave, VE3GSO handles the Eastern Canada NCS duties when he is not out globe trotting or travelling around Canada.
Dave obtains much back-up support from Barry, VE3ISX (our very appreciated website  developer);
John VE3CAK; Bill VE9OA; and during the Winter months also Denny, VE3ONG.
