We have two weekly nets on VE7RXZ (147.220 MHz, +0.600 MHz, T100.0 Hz).

  • Tuesday Mornings at 09:30 local time
  • Thursday Evening at 19:30 local time

We welcome hams from any location to check in with us.

At the end of the Thursday evening net, we move to 146.565 MHz (±15 kHz), 446.100 MHz (±25 kHz), and 3750 kHz (±5 kHz) to test simplex conditions.

Winlink P2P messages can also be sent to VA7FI on 144.970 MHz at any time during the week and will be acknowledged on the Thursday evening net. See the Winlink How-to for more information.

Our net manager is Patrick (VA7FI). Marc (VE7TBP) and Steve (VA7SMI) also rotate as regular net controllers with Robert (VE7RBE) helping out from time to time.

Other Good Lists

Off during the summer
The VE7SYD repeater is solar powered and should not be used except during their regularly scheduled nets or for an emergency. VE7RBB (147.180 MHz, +600kHz, T100.0Hz) is an alternate.
The offset is -1.7 MHz. That is, you listen to 52.870 MHz but transmit on 51.170 Mhz
After the repeater portion, the Saltspring Island Net moves to 146.595 MHz T123.0 simplex followed by 3750 kHz LSB
