Our mission statement

To be "communicators", to respond in an emergency to facilitate communications between various agencies that may be without their own communications or network, or may have insufficient communications or network capacity in the event of an emergency, which could include natural or man-made disasters.

What is SEPARS?

SEPARS is a group of trained Amateur Radio operators that have volunteered to provide communications for the City of Surrey in times of Emergency or Disaster.  To find out more about who we are  and what we do, read more...

Weekly Net

The SEPAR Society net is held each Tuesday at 1930 hours local time on 147.360(+) (tone=110.9) The Net functions to take check-ins, handle traffic and disseminate information on SEPAR Society activities. Following the net, check-ins will also be taken, starting at 2000 hours local time during the Surrey Amateur Radio Club weekly net. We invite participation by all Amateurs.
