The TCN starts at 18:00 GMT 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.
