Important Information About the K7RPT Repeater System

The Amateur Radio Relay Group.inc does not intend to position itself in a policing mode, but does establish guidelines for all of our users. The priority uses of our repeater system is listed below with 1 being highest priority.

1. Emergency involving danger to life.
2. Emergency involving danger to property.
3. Routine traffic.
 a. Regular scheduled nets.
 b. Prearranged communications. (public service)
 c. Prearranged communications. (emergency tests)
 d. Autopatch traffic.
4. Other uses, such as normal conversations, unscheduled drills and tests.

In the case of a real emergency (#1 & #2 above), there exists the possibility that multiple agencies would desire to use one or more of our repeaters. In the event that sharing needs to occur, it would be expected that all groups understand that it is not important who is actual net control, but that as many needs as can be met are done so in the spirit of cooperation.

If you are going to use the system, we ask that all users of the K7RPT system conduct themselves in an appropriate manner while on the air. Please promote professionalism and help to create an air of kindness to others; without regard to age, disability, marital status, protected status, race or color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by law. Lastly, when using the K7RPT System, please don't harp on, rag on or make anyone else in the group or the ham radio community feel less than, uneasy or unwelcome!

K7RPT repeaters are OPEN to everyone, member or not and even though they now require a CTCSS tone to access them. All K7RPT repeaters require the use of CTCSS (tones) to access the repeaters. The K7RPT Repeaters are available to be scheduled for Emergency Nets, Events, Parades and races. The intent of requesting and scheduling of ARRG’s repeaters resources is to minimize conflicts of uses and users while providing access to this coverage. The organizations who have ARRG’s repeater’s as part of their emergency plans may wish to decide among themselves what methods of sharing can best be used in case of an emergency.
