Membership Info

Membership to the BCFMCA is open to all. Your membership dues and donations provide us with the essential funds to operate and maintain radio equipment for the enjoyment of all licensed amateur radio enthusiasts. Without your continued support, the BCFMCA would have a lot of difficulty existing today.

An annual, full, membership to the BCFMCA costs $20.00 CAD and provides radio amateurs with the following benefits:

  • Use of our VHF/UHF FM repeaters with wide-area coverage of Southwestern British Columbia and parts of Washington State. See coverage maps.
  • Use of our VHF FM packet repeater (via the Vancouver Area Packet Organization).
  • Access to our telephone autopatch system:
      An autopatch system for the southwestern BC. This autopatch lets you make calls from wherever you can work the repeater to ANY number in the following area codes: 604, 778, 250 (BC); 360, 206, 425, 253 (Western Washington).

  • A current electronic copy of the BCFMCA Membership Roster with comprehensive repeater frequency guide for British Columbia and Washington.
  • A personalized BCFMCA Membership Card.
  • Support for emergency backup communications for the Lower Mainland.
  • Access to the IRLP gateway to connect VE7RPT to repeaters around the world.
