The VE7RVA Repeater Site
At 2500' on Sumas Mountain

REPEATER SHUTDOWN NOTICE

Due to the willful disregard of the rules by a few ham operators the FVARESS Directors have decided to shut down the VE7RVA repeater system for general use on November 2, 2014. These rules of conduct are published on the FVARESS website but several hams continue to fail to comply and make disparaging and false remarks about the rules and directors. The repeater will be available for nets currently using it, special events and emergency situations.

Future Plans For This Repeater Site

FRASER VALLEY AMATEUR RADIO EMERGENCY SERVICE SOCIETY

BEGINNINGS

In 1994 the Abbotsford Amateur Radio Club  moved their repeater (VE7RVA) to Sumas Mountain.  During the same year club members formed the Fraser Valley Amateur Radio Emergency Service Society (FVARESS) with volunteers who specialize in the maintenance and development of this unique radio repeater site.  The Provincial Emergency Program (PEP) has designated the repeater for inter-municipal and region wide communications during a major emergency.  This repeater is the only VHF/UHF repeater giving communications to the entire Lower Mainland.   

The repeater site source of  power is provided by solar and a diesel generator.  The equipment is run remotely via radio and a wireless Internet link
