Last Friday (March 8), Bob (VE7XNC), Jim (VA7JIR), Patrick (VE7HZF) and Sieg (VA7LEH) travelled to Surrey to visit our Provincial Regional Emergency Operations Centre (PREOC) located on Green Timbers Road. Their installation was very impressive:
The radios (in the middle) all connect to duplexers (on the left) to share the limited number of antennas on the towers.
From there, they can be patched to any ethernet jack in any of the buildings so that anyone anywhere can quickly be setup with a radio station.
One of the operation's room.
The radio room is pretty limited in size since any work station can be outfitted with a radio terminal.
