VECTOR Repeaters

Overview

To support operations VECTOR makes use of repeaters (duplex) and simplex frequencies. For a full list of operational frequencies visit frequencies 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:

  1. In all cases be sure that you and those around you are safe and are looked after.
  2. VECTOR members will refer to the VECTOR Emergency Activation Guide for detailed instructions.
  3. 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.

Notes

  1. Later in 2017 VECTOR’s VHF repeater VE7RVF will be relocated to a higher altitude site that should provide solid coverage of Vancouver and the surrounding communities. Until that time VE7RVF operates at a relatively low-altitude site and is occasionally used as a portable repeater for special events.
  2. VE7TEL is operated by the Telephone Pioneers Amateur Radio Club (TPARC). VECTOR is grateful to TPARC for the use of this repeater.
  3. VE7RVX will not be operational until construction of Firehall #5 is completed in 2018.
