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
1972 and to this day, many of the original founding members
still serve on the ARRG Board and are active with the ARRG Technical
The group was officially incorporated as an Oregon Not For Profit team
in the State of Oregon
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
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
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.
