Neighbouring Repeater information

This list is primarily a work in progress to track repeaters which have not yet been confirmed as still active, or repeaters with uncertain information on location or tone. Please refer to the main website for a list of confirmed repeaters.

For the most part, these repeaters either have coverage in parts of the Okanagan Valley, or coverage in areas no more than a couple hours away.

Sergio And Sergei - a 2017 fictional movie based on actual events (IMDB summary)

In 1991, the USSR is falling apart and Cuba enters its hardest economic crisis. Sergio, a professor of Marxism who can't provide for his family, and Sergei, a Soviet cosmonaut stranded in the Mir space station, share a common passion: amateur radio. Through this hobby, both men will be able to help each other in facing the dramatic changes of their countries.
