Our Facilities

VECTOR Radio Room at Vancouver Emergency Operations Centre

Our communications centre, the radio room serves the City of Vancouver Emergency Operations Center. Seven workstations are permanently outfitted with a mixture of commercial and amateur radio equipment for voice and data UHF operation on 2M, 1.25M and 70cm amateur radio bands and select commercial frequencies per the EOC’s licensing.

A permanent HF station is supported by a 80M/60M dipole and a 5 band Force 12 beam antenna atop a 60 foot tower. If called upon to activate additional HF stations, preconfigured “stacks” complete with power supplies and tuners can be deployed in minutes.

VECTOR's CERV mobile communications centre
The Community Emergency Response Vehicle (CERV) is a mobile communications centre that largely duplicates the EOC communication centre's capabilities. Constructed out of a former Coast Mountain transit bus, the CERV was built by VECTOR members and features five permanent workstations and a conference area.
