The Volunteer Radio Group (VRG), also known as the Diefenbunker Amateur Radio Club (DARC), is a loose knit group of Diefenbunker volunteers with a common interest in radio. Our activities are not limited to radio-type work and volunteers are encouraged to get involved in other Museum activities.

As a volunteer, you have access to the Museum any time the Museum is open. 

While you need to be a licensed amateur operator to operate VE3CWM you don’t need a radio license to help on the various projects, both radio and non-radio.

Radio Operations

If you are a licensed amateur radio operator (Ham), you are encouraged to get checked out on our equipment prior to operating the Museum’s station, VE3CWM.

Licensed volunteers are encouraged to come to the Museum during visitor hours to operate VE3CWM and chat with interested visitors. Note, visitor day/times change seasonally.
