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. The group leader is Andy, VE7EQU.

EMERGENCY SIG

This special interest group is in charge of the club's communication trailer. They provide emergency radio communication to support the Prvincial Emergency Program and their volunteer groups as well as the municipal governemnts EOC's (Emergency Operation Centres) in the region. The group leader is Graig, VE7EAP.

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.
