Club records are a little scant, but it appears we can claim that in 2023 our VE7RSS repeater will have been active for 45 years.   There is a possibility it was actually 2022 so this is a conservative claim!

 

As a club we need to celebrate and publicize this incredible milestone.  NORAC has installed and operates the oldest continually operating and most heavily used 2m repeater in the entire Valley.  VE7RSS also hosts the biggest regular 2m net in the Valley.  If you are a NORAC member and want to interact with other members remember to reach out on the repeater from time to time.

 

If anyone has pictures from the early days of the repeater it would be great to get copies for a media article.   Please contact Ritchie VA7RLX.
