Ongoing Monthly Support to ARRG
Monthly ARRG Support Plan

For Members or Non Members: Automatic deductions via your debit or credit card are a separate donation platform. These donations are above and beyond your regular annual $20.00 dues.

 

There are people who don't wish to be an ARRG member, but still wish to help support their favorite K7RPT repeater. These automatic payments are set up by the system with no end date.

 

Most automatic payments are in the amount of $5 or $10 per month and have no end date. Of course, changing your credit card will cancel the auto deduction, so if you wish to re start the auto support plan, please visit this system after any major card or account change.

 

Cancel Anytime - please contact us at k7rpt@arrg.org and we'll jump on the system and cancel your automatic payment plan.

Not ready to become an ARRG member, but still want to support the K7RPT Repeater System?

 

After a decade of fundraising over and above what the ARRG members provide through their annual dues, the group had a nice savings fund built up.

Unfortunately, over the past 2 years we were forced to dip into that rainy day fund to cover the cost of replacing both damaged antennas and feedlines at South Saddle and the Sylvan KOIN Tower site.

 

Two of Portland’s most heavily relied on emergency services repeaters were on the verge of going off the air for an extended period of time. Several large storms, with winds reaching over 100mph damaged the 147.040, 442.225, 147.320 and 442.325 antennas and feedlines.

 

The damage was such that our wish to take down and repair the antennas and feedline ourselves just wasn’t an option. While the ARRG Tech team did do the complete work at the South Saddle Site, which saved us thousands of dollars, unfortunately, the KOIN Tower is a commercial broadcast facility and we were required to hire a tower contractor to do all the work. By the time we were done, the KOIN repairs ran close to $6900.00

 

 We don’t like to ask for extra donations, because each of you already support the K7RPT system with your annual dues and in your help maintaining the system, but Nature dealt us a couple heavy blows last year.

If you could help out throughout the year, above and beyond your annual dues, ARRG would really appreciate it. All donations go right back into the repeater fund and we don’t use it for anything else.
