I've thought of it. Can a US Ham license be used in Canada and are repeaters available there also? We will be in western Canada for longer distances than we will be in Alaska.

Edit: I answered my own question about US/Canadian operation. There is an automatic bilateral agreement. My Legion post hosts a TALARC (The American Legion Amateur Radio Club) chapter. I'll talk with them. The problem would be in finding a testing site that isn't shut down due to Covid-19 and in getting ready to take the test. Add to that, finding suitable equipment.

Talk to those folks about APRS and uses with a Ham Radio. You can probably get tested by them as well. Plenty of online 'official' sites for prepping' for the test. I'm sure they'll explain that to you as well.
