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.

Timberline Repeater News

On September 5th, 2014, the ARRG Technical Team traveled to our Timberline Repeater site on Mt. Hood to upgrade the repeaters.

The team, which was comprised of Jim Campbell, N7QME, Jeff Scheetz, KF7HG, Marc Douglas, AE7KK, Dale Justice, K7WW and Marc Peterson, W7PM removed our aging 30+ year old Motorola Micor repeaters.

The 147.120 repeater was replaced with a newer Motorola MSR-2000 and the 444.225 repeater was replaced with a MSF-5000 synthesized system. The entire aging battery bank was pulled and 8 newly donated AGM batteries were installed.

The 442.225 system is back on the Yaesu System Fusion FM/Digital repeater.


Feel free to use either FM or Digital. FM users should have a 100.0 hz tone programmed for encode/decode to minimize any digital traffic (noise).
