Amateur Packet Radio

What is Amateur Packet Radio ?





VAPO has eliminated the yearly "dues" 

If the system should fail, require updating or whatever, we will be requesting funding from the members who are interested in keeping the system going.  We presently have enough funding for the near future, but in case we require funding we will be calling you.


Lets keep the VAPO Packet System humming in the Vancouver area.   Please check the  VAPO Membership Page to verify your status.
