Valemount

147.000- (100Hz tone)

Valemount is the farthest site east of Prince George that is owned by PGARC. It is a solar powered site and is linked into our repeater network. In 2009, the equipment was moved from Canoe Mountain to the new location overlooking the town. From the new location, we are able to link back to Prince George via McBride. Valemount is an end-of-the-line solar powered repeater that is linked into the network without UHF links. It is a tricky combination of one VHF radio at the McBride (grid powered) site and two different sub-audible tones that keep the repeaters from locking up. The main reason we do this at our end of the line solar sites is to reduce power consumption.
