VECTOR uses the following frequency list as the basis for pre-programming the radio fleet VECTOR owns and maintains in locations throughout the City of Vancouver.
For a list of VECTOR and partner repeaters see our repeater page.
Our primary operational frequencies are the first 12 “channels” in the VHF section of this list. Local radio amateurs are strongly encouraged to program their radios with these 12 frequencies. On today’s modern radios it is common to have the capability for hundreds of radio channels - to avoid interfering with other channels you have already programmed you might wish to allocate channels at some convenient multiple of 100.
A pre-defined frequency list helps facilitate reliable communications during exercises and in times of emergency. When activated you will hear us on air typically referring to frequencies as “channels”; doing so speeds communications.
Be ready in case of emergency - We encourage our members and all local radio amateurs to pre-program their radios with at minimum the first 12 radio frequencies.
Repeater owners: Please report any errors or changes to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The VECTOR master frequency list was last updated on November 10, 2016. As we maintain a large inventory of pre-programmed radios cached throughout Vancouver our list does not change frequently.
