ARRG - 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!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

New K7RPT Repeaters or Partner repeater on the Air

The repeater covers the Coast Range and is located on a a ridge just East of Astoria, Oregon.

The repeater is now linked fulltime with South Saddle 147.320 system and carries the nightly ARES D1 Net all the way to the beach.

The Timberline system is now linked up to two NEW Central Oregon Repeaters

Eagle Butte 442.225 + 114.8  located at Warm Springs and covers Hood to Bend. The site is at 3800' and linked f/t into Timberline 147.120.

Cinder Butte - Redmond 147.040 + 114.8 replaced the old Awbrey Butte repeater, eventually will be moved up to our building on Gray Butte.

We'll help you with your Estate Amateur Radio and Electronics Gear cleanup!

 

We believe in helping families of Ham's who need help dismantling old ham shacks, taking down antennas and towers.

Our team can usually do this without added cost to the estate. Please write us and let us know what your particular situation is. We'll be happy to send one of our technical team out to meet and discuss your needs and make a plan.

Our cleanup removal cost is offset by any and all equipment donations to ARRG. 100% of all equipment donated to ARRG, Inc. and is usually fully tax deductible. ARRG is an official Oregon Charity and operates under the IRS 501c(3) charter. Our team of experts will help you clean up a Shack and properly sell or donate your loved ones Ham and electronic gear to our fully tax deductible Amateur Radio Public Service team. Contact Marc Peterson, W7PM at w7pm@live.com for more information.

K7RPT Emergency Repeater/Antenna Fund

 

After years of hard work cleaning up Ham Estates and refurbishing and selling gear at the ARRG tables at SeaPac and Rickreall, we had built up a a solid savings amount in our Emergency Repeater and Antenna fund. Unfortunately, over the past 2 years of several record breaking storms, several of our repeater sites and their antenna systems where damaged beyond repair. These damaged sites included the 147.040 at South Saddle, the 147.040 and 442.225 located at Sylvan (KOIN) and lastly the 145.260 on Mt. Fanny.

  

 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.
