Squamish Amateur Radio Club
Squamish, British Columbia, Canada
Located in the heart of the scenic Sea to Sky corridor, approx. halfway between Vancouver and Whistler; Squamish is home to a number of dedicated radio amateurs. This volunteer club handles communications for local bike races and sporting events and also serves the community as an integral resource for the Provincial Emergency Program. In the event of a wide-scale civil disaster, Squamish amateurs are well prepared to support emergency communications for the community.
The membership maintains a 2 meter VHF repeater on 147.00+ MHz (77.0 Hz tone access), and UHF repeater on 442.650+ MHz (77.0 Hz tone access) with a footprint extending from Horseshoe Bay to Whistler. The local IRLP Node 1147, is accessed through the repeater; and APRS is operational in the area.
