2018-2019 K7RPT Repeater FAQS

·    ARRG is ran by Amateur Radio Operators just like you! The entire K7RPT Repeater System is owned and operated by ARRG, Inc. which in turn has a Board of Directors who are also distinguished Amateur Radio professionals and active Members of the Amateur Radio Community.

·    Best in Audio Quality! The K7RPT repeater and link system has a proven proven record of providing each user with a quality listening experience.

·    Our system uses recent generation Motorola Synthesized continuous- duty repeaters at each of key Mountain Stop Sites. 95% of the system Public Safety models of the Motorola MSF, MSR and Quantar systems. While they cost tons up front, they run and run, unlike the DIY ‘thrown together crap’ other local ham groups attempt to pass off as a ‘repeater.’

·    Our system is kept aligned and maintained by a stellar Technical Team, who each have some current or past Public Safety or Land Mobile training.’ Ham Groups from all over the area have used our Techs expertise!

·    It’s all because of YOU, our wonderful annual $20, $30 and $50 Member Supporters! You totally make this system possible and running perfectly 24/7

·    The 147.120, 147.320 and 147.380 have 24 HR a day EchoLink nodes on them. All to help you better use your smartphone to stay connected to your favorite K7RPT repeater while traveling. The 147.040 has an open to the public IRLP node.

·     ARRG Supports and provides free repeater facilities for many Emergency Service Team such as the ARES D1 Net, National Weather Service SKYWARN Net, The Multnomah County Neighborhood Emergency Training Net, Bevearton CERT, Tigard CERT, Lake Oswego CERT , Mountain Wave Search and Rescue, The Coast Guard and Air National Guard. Our repeaters are so important to law enforcement that our repeaters are actually programmed into hundreds of Emergency Response cars, trucks and Mobile Command Posts around Oregon State.

 Easy to Understand K7RPT Operating on the air rules:

For 42 years, ARRG has always been the leading Amateur Radio Team which has always fiercely supported diversity, and we have and will always welcome all Amateur Radio Operators to freely use our repeaters (in hopes that you will realize how cool and modern our system) and just maybe consider joining our team by making an annual donation of $20, $30 or even $50 dollars! If you are going to use the system, we ask that all users of the K7RPT system operate themselves while on the air, so as to promote the air of kindness to other, without regard to age, disability, marital status, protected veteran status, race or color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation or gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by law. While using the K7RPT System, please don't harp on, rag on or make anyone else on our repeaters feel less than, uneasy or unwelcome! Try to keep the anti-gay, anti-religion and anti-trump crap off our repeaters!

Public Service through Technology

As an Oregon Non Profit 501C (3) public service organization, the Amateur Radio Relay Group (ARRG) builds and maintains the 17 wide area VHF/UHF repeater systems that make up the K7RPT System.  ARRG offers all types of Public Service support by providing quality communications facilities to State and Local Emergency Preparedness Teams such as ARES, CERT and several Search & Rescue Groups, all at no charge to that agency or group. When our repeaters are not being used for emergency training or daily Nets, they are open to any licensed Ham in our Community.  In an effort to support our community during times of emergency, we have the equipment and trained people who can set up a mobile Net Control/Dispatch Center within a just a few hours time. Annually, we also provide ARRG Volunteers and radio gear to many special events like the annual Hood to Coast race, Reach the Beach race, Cycle for Life Ride, Race for the Cure, Portland Marathon and even more!
