If I cross the border entering Canada (say at Sault Ste. Marie) and I have a VHF radio but no US ship station or US radiotelephone operator's, will Canadian customs confiscate the radio?
In Canada it isn't illegal to listen to the VHF radio... say for weather info. It is illegal to transmit without the licenses mentioned above. Is there an assumption that if you possess you will transmit? I really don't want to shell out $170 for worthless licenses if at all possible.
