| This is PGARC's most active special interest group. They
maintain about 15 mountain-top repeaters in the Prince George area
and as far as a 4-hour drive from PG (where there no one to do the
work). All the PGARC sites have backup power and many have APRS
The digital SIG was reactivated in 2019 to install and maintain the new digital intranet system that will eventually be connected to the BCWARN system. Although this SIG works closely with the repeater SIG, a very different skill set is required so separating the two jobs seemed appropriate.
All club members with an EMBC Volunteer ID card are members of this group and others are welcome. This special interest group is in charge of the club's communication trailer. They provide emergency radio communication to support the Emergency management BC and their volunteer groups as well as the municipal governments EOC's (Emergency Operation Centres) in the region.
Although not a SIG, the Prince George Amateur Radio Club participates in community events such as traffic control for parades and walks and special events such as the 2008 BC Senior Games.
Leader Job Descriptions
The SIG leaders are managers. They are responsible for the organization and supervision of the group and ensuring that the work gets done, not for doing the work. They are responsible to the board of directors and ultimately, the membership. They should not be one of the primary technical persons in the group.
