As stated in our original constitution, the objectives of our society are:

[b] To install and operate repeater stations in the North Okanagan Shuswap area.

[g] To assist upon request the radio amateurs in the Shuswap Volunteer Search and Rescue organization with access to the club’s facilities and expertise.
