A licensed electrician can do many things that would normally be considered illegal, but only when he is in attendance. He then also takes responsibility.
I have 2 trade tickets, both with the interprovincial seal. I have 40 years in the trade. I work mainly on industrial projects.

I have a legal obligation to rat out anyone who back feeds into the realm of Hydro. Electrical Inspectors just LOVE hearing about stuff like this, as do Fire Marshalls.

The hydro boys are very safety conscious, they need to be, many have been killed over the years. All these silly laws are the result of casualties.

You can do what you want, so long as you prepared to face the consequences, and you have lots of insurance and/or a good lawyer.

  Ask the power company how safe they think it is..  Some lineman is risking his life on it.

  It is not very often a lineman works on a dead circuit.
  Here they treat all circuits as live. If not they are shorted.
  I also have a suicide cord for my house. I have one master breaker that disconnect the house.
  It is then my responsibility.
  As far as legality, does widebanding a radio come under that.
