In the event of a significant emergency affecting communications across the Sunshine Coast, all amateur radio operators should:
It is unlikely that VE7SCE will use HF for local communications on the Sunshine Coast, however relays may be required for another station on frequency and operators should monitor EMBC or BCPSN HF frequencies if able to do so.
The following will be broadcast from VE7SCE on VE7RXZ 147.220 MHz +0.6 T100.0 and/or on simplex frequencies:
† As we share a frequency with W7AVM on Whidbey Island in Washington State, the full SCRD name and location will be used initially to avoid any confusion should our traffic be heard south of the border.

The following frequencies and modes have been pre-determined for suggested use of the Amateur Radio Emergency Service during a declared emergency, or a disaster declared or otherwise, occurring anywhere in Canada. These frequencies have been registered with the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) for its listings of Canadian national emergency frequencies in IARU Region 2.
These are suggested frequencies and should not be construed as meaning that other HF frequencies may not be considered for Emcomm operations.
No Amateur Radio operator or group has exclusive ownership of any particular frequency on any band and, while common sense and courtesy logically would dictate that other Radio Amateurs should keep clear of frequencies being used for emergency or disaster operations, the affected ARES Net Control Station (NCS) must be prepared to move up or down from the pre-determined frequency, as required, in order to conduct operations. Entering into an on-air argument must be avoided.

Δ The purpose of the net is to make contact with EOCs in the Capital Regional District.
★ The purpose of the net is to make contact with EOCs in the Vancouver Island Region (VIR) as well as interested amateurs in the VIR. Each of the Regional Districts in the VIR are called in sequence.
§ The tone for Port Alberni seems to be T151.4 instead of T141.3.
