A number of groups have played with mixing POCSAG and ham radio, but I've never heard of any actually making it work. Rather than worrying too much about whether it was legal or not, they assumed that since it was amateurs doing amateur things with it, i.e. playing with and learning about radio, it was OK. Industry Canada generally trust us to behave ourselves. Can't say the same for other countries.
The 2-way stuff paging I work with (ReFLEX 2.7) is much cooler than POCSAG, but Motorola could teach Apple a thing or two about closed, proprietary systems... :-(
