Welcome to the N7PIR repeater system web site. The N7PIR system is designed, built and maintained to support amateur radio communication on a daily basis as well as emergency communications as needed in the event of a disaster or severe weather conditions. The system also fosters international communications by combining radio technology with the Internet, linking amateur operators all over the world via IRLP and Echolink.
The N7PIR system operates thanks to contributions from our users which help to maintain the system and sites. Donations are very much appreciated. If you would like to donate please email Mike (K7QDX) via our general contact web form and he'll be glad to provide the necessary information. Thanks for your continued support of the system!
The N7PIR System provides excellent coverage of the Portland and Vancouver Metro areas along with coverage in the Willamette Valley and the Highway 26 corridor over Mount Hood to Central Oregon via linked repeaters. From high above the City of Portland in the West Hills, the Cascade Range, the hills west of Salem and the mountains of central Oregon, the system provides the amateur radio community with dependable communications, clear audio and friendly users.
N7PIR also operates a "satellite repeater", on the Oregon Coast in Seaside, which generally operates as a stand-alone repeater, but can be linked with the rest of the system. It provides excellent coverage in Seaside, Gearhart, and parts of Astoria.
Thank You for stopping by. Look around and enjoy your visit. We'll catch you on the air!
A reminder that the N7PIR Monthly User Group Breakfast is coming up on Saturday February 25th, 2017 from 8:30am - 10:00am at Elmer's Restaurant Tigard located at 14055 Pacific Hwy, Tigard.
Please let Brien (K7KSN) or one of us know if you are planning to join us. You will likely hear us on the Skyline Repeater on Saturday morning. Letting one of us know is very important because we need to tell Elmers how many people we are expecting so that everyone is accomodated.
The weather seems to have gotten to us again in that Goat Mountain is not transmitting. In addition, linking for all sites is actively being worked on. More information will be available at the Breakfast this Saturday and will be posted sometime thereafter.
