Hey folks, I have one of those GMRS radios that has weather forecast.

Where does that come from? And will it work at Stratton Lake in Algonquin Park?

I know there is signal along hwy 60 and have had luck as far North as Hogan but not sure if there is a broadcast along hwy 17 anywhere.
I can say with certainty that I have had no luck on Sec, Traverse, lower Petawawa, Big Bissett, Cedar, Brain and the East side.
Normally just find a local FM station and apply a little common sense to what i hear.
Besides, it is not a canoe trip unless it rains.

CBC radio one from Pembroke and Ottawa should be available on FM there... there's usually a brief weather forecast after the news reports at the top of the hour.

I'd suggest doing a little Google session to learn to read the sky for yourself.. All you need is 24 hours notice or less to get that rainfly up. Plus its fun to see when you are accurate!
