Welcome to EPCOM,
Home of VE7PCE & the VA7RPC Repeater

Welcome to the online web site for Port Coquitlams Emergency PreparednessCommunications group. EPCOM was founded in the fall of 2002 with the intention of providing communications in the event of an emergency. Since then, EPCOM has been apart of numerous local events including the annual Terry Fox Run and Canada Celebrations, linking volunteers together.

Along with participating in community events, EPCOM also gets together for the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) Field Day. Field Day happens every year on the last full weekend in June at Castle Park in Port Coquitlam BC. At Field Day EPCOM sets up the City’s emergency shelters and communication equipment in an event aimed to practice their skills and test equipment. The Field Day exercise is intended to allow Amateur Radio operators to practice communication skills under primitive conditions, with generator and battery-powered equipment and portable antennas, to contact other Amateur Radio operators throughout North America.


EPCOM Operates a repeater, VA7RPC on a frequency of 145.490 with a -.600 offset and requires a tone of 94.8. We also operate a net bi-weekly. For more information on our nets click here
