To support operations VECTOR makes use of repeaters (duplex) and simplex frequencies. For a full list of operational frequencies visit our frequency list and take note in particular of Channels 1 through 12.
In the event of an emergency
Should an emergency situation result in widespread disruption of normal telephone communications services we recommend:
- In all cases be sure that you and those around you are safe and are looked after.
- VECTOR members will refer to the VECTOR Emergency Activation Guide for detailed instructions.
- All local radio amateurs are encouraged to:
- Check in to the radio net on our primary repeater
- If our primary repeater is not functioning, listen for instructions to be broadcast on the output frequency of the repeater.
The current VECTOR primary operations repeater is found on channel 2: VE7TEL  VHF 145.170 MHz input -600 kHz.

- VE7RVF specifies an input tone but at this time does not require it. We recommend all operators configure their radio equipment to include an input / PL tone for VE7RVF to reduce any downtime or confusion if an input tone is required to be enabled on short notice in the future. A 100 Hz output tone (CTCSS) is always transmitted for the optional benefit of those troubled by intermod in certain areas of Vancouver.
- VE7TEL is operated by the Telephone Pioneers Amateur Radio Club (TPARC). VECTOR is grateful to TPARC for the use of this repeater.
- VE7RVX will not be operational until construction of Firehall #5 is completed in 2019.
