Mission Statement

Statement of Purpose

In the Radio Communication Regulations pertaining to the Amateur Radio Service rules, Industry Canada has made provisions for emergency communications by Amateur Radio due to the value of the amateur radio service to the public as a voluntary non-commercial service, particularly with respect to providing emergency communications.


The goal of CARG is to provide trained amateur radio operators for emergency communications for municipal, provincial and non-government agencies under the guidance of the CARG Emergency Coordinator (EC) and leadership team. CARG seeks to develop and maintain cooperative relationships with municipal, provincial and non-government agencies (ie. Red Cross) in the Tri-city area.

CARG in process of adding Packet to its Voice capabilities for Emergency Communications in 2022

Until now, a dozen CARG volunteers, who have packet stations installed at home, have been taking part in the local Packet Project. 

However, It is not necessary to have a Packet Station to join the Packet Project group. 

If you have Internet access, then you can participate. So here is your opportunity to become proficient in packet operations without having to invest in any equipment whatsoever. 

Please email me if interested and I'll have your email added to the Packet Project distribution list so you can receive meeting appointments and updates. An Internet account on the Moncton Packet node will also be created for you.

The Packet Project meets Thursday evenings at 7:30pm, and I hope to see you at our next meeting.
