Every Wednesday evening at 1915 local time, VE7PEP is the Net Control Station on the Vancouver Island Trunk Repeater System. The purpose of the net is to make contact with EMBC registered amateur radio operators and interested amateurs in the Vancouver Island Region (VIR). Each of the Regional Districts in the VIR are called in sequence.
The Island Trunk operates on the following repeaters;
The Headquarters amateur radio group consists of two teams. Alpha Team is the core volunteer group. Bravo Team consists of amateur radio operators that are dedicated to other local authority emergency programs in the region but have received training on the procedures and use of the radio equpment at EMBC HQ.
Bravo Team’s primary response is to their local authority first and will assist EMBC only if their local authority is not involved in an event. A Letter of Understanding has been signed between EMBC HQ and the Peninsula Emergency Measures Organization (PEMO) to provide PEMO members on a mutual aid basis.
