VE1HR is located in the Nova Scotia Integrated Mobile Radio System building on Maclellan’s Mountain in Pictou County, 229 meters above sea level. The facility is owned by the Government of Nova Scotia and has generator backup power.

Our system includes VHF voice, UHF voice linking, and VHF packet. The VHF voice system is centered around an Arcom RC-210 controller and a Motorola MSR2000 repeater transmitting 30W on 146.760(-) MHz. A switchable link provides voice connectivity to most of the Maritime Provinces via the MAVCOM Link System.

Our VHF packet LAN operates as VE1HR-1 on 147.540 MHz and connects to the backbone network via VE1HR on 145.010 MHz.

All of our VHF equipment is fed to the provincial grid antennas located at the top of a 73 meter tower, or 302 meters above sea level. The UHF link radios are fed to 2 UHF beams located at 25 and 43 meters up the tower.
