The BVARC site at Hazelton is the farthest west that the repeater network reaches. The next town west is Kitwanga and from there to Terrace is the crooked Skeena River Valley. The valley runs between very high, rugged mountains making the installation of intermediate repeater sites difficult and expensive. This and the small Amateur Radio population in the area means that the dream to link to Terrace and Prince Rupert remain just that, a dream.
