VX9MRC Special Event Station
The Marconi Radio Club of Newfoundland VX9MRC has been endorsed to conduct transmissions on 472-479 kHz by Industry Canada for 14 and 15 December to bring attention to the potential new Amateur band and to the role played by Amateur Radio in emergency communications.
A special message from our mayor will be sent on CW on 478 kHz as a beacon transmission on these days, said Joe Craig, VO1NA, a low-frequency enthusiast. Those receiving the message are invited to forward it to their respective municipal representative.

Radio Amateurs of Canada strongly supports the future allocation of 472-479kHz for amateur radio within Canada. Delegates attending the 2012 World Radiocommunication Conference WRC-12 http://www.itu.int/ITU-R/index.asp?category=conferences&rlink=wrc-12&lang=en> approved the secondary allocation between 472-479 kHz for the Amateur Radio Service.
