SYSTEM FUSION DIGITAL

 

 ARRG has installed a new repeater system on the 442.225 Repeater System.

Introducing the latest digital technology by Yaesu called System Fusion which uses the new 12.5 kc / 6.25 kc C4FM Digital technology. Unlike D-Star and other digi modes, the System Fusion passes both regular FM and the new C4FM modes on the same frequency.

Welcome

The Amateur Radio Relay Group, otherwise known as ARRG, owns and operates the K7RPT
Amateur Radio Repeater System.

Our original repeaters were installed and operational around the summer of 1972 and to this day, many of the original founding members still serve on the ARRG Board and are active with the ARRG Technical Team.

The group was officially incorporated as an Oregon Not For Profit team in the State of Oregon October 1977.
ARRG is an official 501(C) 3 Non Profit Corporation and all donations are 100% tax deductible.

Currently, the group is one of Oregon's original Amateur Radio Groups and while not the largest, we operate 16 wide area repeater systems, covering both Oregon and SW Washington State.

ARRG is proudly affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) and has been recognized as an affiliated club since February 1983.

 
 Beginning with our very first emergency radio repeater located on South Saddle Mountain (35 miles west of DT Portland) the group provides repeaters for day to day use and emergency communications on 2 meter, 1.25 meter and 70 centimeter Amateur Radio bands. Futuristic internet VOIP linking systems are also part of ARRG's repeater systems, including IRLP and EchoLink gateways that connect local users to other Amateur operators all over the world.

To the people who run ARRG and the K7RPT system, Amateur Radio is more than just a hobby, it's a way of life.
Our team is seriously dedicated to the advancement and enjoyment of amateur radio by providing reliable repeaters for community service activities, emergency communications and for day to day ham radio activities.


ARRG's wide area repeater systems host many ARES, CERT, EOC, SKYWARN, Search & Rescue and Public Safety teams.

By supporting ARRG, you will help to support the entire K7RPT Repeater System. You will also have access to quality members and technical resources to help you thrive in this great hobby.

South Saddle System Update
The new Skyline repeater is on 444.400 + 100.0 hz and is linked fulltime to 147.320 and offers some improved Portland Downtown and Eastside coverage.
Also, the South Saddle ECHOLINK node is in full operation on the 147.320 and 442.325 system.
Users can search their ECHOLINK station listing for K7RPT-L and connect to the South Saddle system for the next few days. The system does have a full second delay, so please give each other time to respond when working Echo stations via the repeater and vice versa. ARES members will be emailed the South Saddle ECHOLINK Quick Start Guide by their Net Manager. ARRG Members already have the guide as part of their ARRG K7RPT USER GUIDE
