In the years 1995,VE2 MKJ And VE2 MKE founded the United Amateurs network (VE2 RAU).Its first repeater on frequency 146.775 - was installed in Estrie. Always at the cutting edge of technology, they have developed a unique infrastructure that has left an indelible mark on the memories of all amateurs in the region. Thanks to their avant-garde vision, they were able to innovate and create something special that marked the history of amateur radio. The United Amateurs network remains an example of success in the field of amateur radio.

We had built a network of repeaters connected to computers of the time, integrating voice messages broadcast over the airwaves and various memorable gadgets for amateur radios of this period. This innovative infrastructure left a strong impression on the minds of amateur radio enthusiasts of the time. The technology used for this network was at the cutting edge of what was possible at the time, and the built-in gadgets provided a unique and memorable experience. The creativity and ingenuity put into the design of this infrastructure has helped advance the field of amateur radio.

Later,VE2LBN Hagenjoined the network with its high quality repeaters in the Melbourne Townships, on the frequency443,750- And 147.255+, offering great reach in the region. The addition of VE2LBNHagen to the Amateur Radio Network has enhanced the resilience of communications in the event of natural disasters or other emergencies. This collaboration has helped improve the efficiency and reliability of the network, providing a more robust emergency communications solution that is better suited to the needs of the region.VE2LBN Hagenthus made a significant contribution to the network of radio amateurs.


Over time, we have added several repeaters in different regions of Quebec, including Estrie, Montérégie, Central Quebec, Quebec City, the Charlevoix region, Montreal and St-Joseph du Lac. In total, we integrated more than 21 repeaters in VHF and UHF to our network. We have also integrated audio processing equipment such as compressors, equalizers and limiters, in order to deliver faithful sound quality throughout the network. This sophisticated infrastructure has enabled us to provide a high quality communication experience for radio amateurs across the province.

VE2RCO One 10M repeater

There was a great project in Estrie that VE2XLR ad set up with several amateur radio stations in Sherbrooke;VE2TBU, VE2GDR, VE2COR. A 10M repeater at the frequency of 29.630MHZ FM, it had been installed at the main site of the network on the top of rue Belvédère. The receiver was installed on the Mont Beauvoir site and the TX on Belvédère. 


The project ran for over a year and was used by many amateurs in the area, as well as for DX communications on this band, which was very nice. However, it is important to note that it is not easy to operate on two sites due to the size of the filtrations on the 10M. The interference is too great for smooth communication, which can be a challenge for radio amateurs using this band. Despite this, the project was a success and allowed many enthusiasts in the region to enjoy a quality communication experience.


Kosta VE2 JKA was a pioneer in the adoption of DMR technology in the field of amateur radio. Thanks to his initiative, the first digital communication network was set up, offering a unique experience to fans in Quebec. The repeater DMR 448.375+, based in Sherbrooke in the Eastern Townships, marked a major turning point in the orientation of amateur radio towards digital technology. As a precursor, Kosta VE2 JKA has played an important role in the promotion and adoption of this new technology, allowing radio amateurs to benefit from the advantages offered by the DMR.


Now the network has more than14 DMR repeatersmost on UHF and a few on VHF.

With the advent of DMR technology, enthusiasts can now enjoy superior voice and data quality, greater communication capacity and advanced security features. DMR, or Digital Mobile Radio, is a digital technology that uses narrow frequency channels to transmit voice and data signals. Radio amateurs can now make connections with other amateurs around the world, exchange information and participate in exciting activities. DMR technology has truly revolutionized amateur radio.

Unlike analog communication, DMR uses a digital modulation system which improves sound quality and reduces interference. It also offers greater communication capacity and enables advanced features such as encryption and GPS location. DMR has become increasingly popular in the amateur radio field due to its technological advantages and practical features.

Netsolid And mobile N4, two Quebec Internet providers, have collaborated to set up a solid private Internet network which has made it possible to build a quality infrastructure. Thanks to their expertise, it was possible to propel this private network and make it functional to meet the specific needs of the infrastructure in question. This collaboration has made it possible to build a quality network that meets the high requirements of the infrastructure in question, thus providing a smooth and efficient experience.

Best regards and thank you for your usual support and collaboration. Michel Jr Savoy, VE2MKJ and Kosta Matzaras VE2JKA
