In support of our mission VECTOR runs regular and special event operations to keep skills fresh, train members, and provide valuable service to our community. These include:
- Weekly Wednesday radio net
- May: Emergency Preparedness Week (public outreach, demonstration)
- June: Field Day, a major event held on the last weekend of June each year, VECTOR establishes a remote communications command centre to simulate a post-disaster situation where our primary fixed communications centre is unavailable. The public is invited and welcome to tour our Field Day site.
- July 1: Canada Day fireworks
- July/August: Celebration of Light (observe and report)
- August: Vancouver Pride Parade
- November: Santa Claus Parade
- December: New Years Eve fireworks
- Exercises and drills run by VECTOR or the agencies we serve
- Various other civic events throughout the year
 Regular nets operated by other organizations can be both informative and provide opportunity for radio skills practice. See /ops/local-radio-nets for a schedule.
