SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS


REPEATER SIG

This is PGARC's most active special interest group. They maintain about a dozen mountain-top repeaters in the Prince George area and as far as a 4-hour drive from PG (where there no one to do the work). All the PGARC sites have backup power and many have APRS equipment.

EMERGENCY SIG

All club members with an EMBC Volunteer ID card are members of this group and others are welcome. This special interest group is in charge of the club's communication trailer. They provide emergency radio communication to support the Emergency management BC and their volunteer groups as well as the municipal governments EOC's (Emergency Operation Centres) in the region.

COMMUNITY EVENTS

Although not a SIG, the Prince George Amateur Radio Club participates in community events such as traffic control for parades and walks and special events such as the 2008 BC Senior Games.
