Welcome to ARRG and the K7RPT Repeater System


The Amateur Radio Relay Group, Inc. (ARRG) is an Oregon Non-Profit 501C (3)public service organization. ARRG owns and operates eighteen or so VHF and UHF repeaters, all of which make up the K7RPT Repeater system.

ARRG was founded in 1977 and we are currently celebrating our 41th year of providing quality repeater service to the Amateur Radio Community.

ARRG believes in Public Service through Technology and we operate three Worldwide Internet connected EchoLink VOIP nodes and one IRLP VOIP node. We also operate an APRS Digi at Government Camp - Mt. Hood and at our South Saddle Mountain radio site.

ARRG supports many Public Service events in the community. We do this by setting up and operating portable repeaters and dispatch gear for events like the Hood to Coast and Portland to Coast Relay, Reach the Beach, Cycle for Life ride and Race for the Cure events.

If you are New to Amateur Radio or just new to ARRG and the K7RPT Repeater System, our technical team members are here to assist you by answering questions, chatting up your Ham related ideas and even providing you in person help and support - just ask!
 

ARRG Latest News

The ARRG Booth at SEAPAC this year was a major hit!
Thanks for all your support by coming by the ARRG booth.
We gained many new members and had many member renewals, which means another year of continued upgrade and expansion of your K7RPT Repeater System. Check out all the Pictures and Video of the event by checking out our Facebook scroll to the right or by visiting Facebook proper.


The ARRG SEAPAC Spring $1 Raffle Winners
The Yaesu FT-70DR Dualband FM/Digi walkie was awarded to

Brian McCallister, KJ7BLP from Salem, Oregon.

The Yaesu FTM-100DR Dualband FM/Digi mobile was awarded to

Jane Beals, W7LAW from Carlton, Oregon.

Evan Vander Stoep, KJ7BRE received the prestigious Public Service through Technology Young Ham Award at this years SEAPAC. He was also interviewed by the ARRL video team in from the East Coast.

It should be noted that many of you suggested we hold a Summer Online Raffle, so as to give our web readers and those that aren't able to make it to SEAPAC an opportunity to also participate and further help support the club. This is a great idea and I promise to bring this up at our next ARRG Board meeting and see if we can do this.

One other suggestion we are looking at is to sponsor a Portland Metro Ham Swap/Estate sale this summer. ARRG and other groups and individuals are currently sitting on about 10 radio estates, which should make up around a 20 table event. So if you like this idea, please let us know!

K7RPT Community Assistance

Did you know that ARRG often refurbishes donated gear we receive so we can in turn repurpose the gear by getting it into the hands of new Ham's in our Community? 

We are always looking for your tax deductible donation of good used gear, repeaters and mobiles to use as linking radios. We also appreciate receiving your donation of test equipment, wattmeter's, coax, hardline, commercial and ham antennas, towers and rotors. You name it, we'll help you get rid of it by picking it up and providing you an itemized tax deductible receipt.
