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!
We would like to remind everyone that users must ID before, during and after using IRLP. Please disconnect when finished! If you wish to use IRLP or Echolink and are not familiar with the process please ask for a control operator and/or review the guidelines page on this website. Thanks!
Many thanks to the technical team and other friends for getting the Goat Mountain repeater back on the air. It is now up and linked with the Skyline Repeater providing a wider area of coverage Goat being back on-line will help improve coverage in along Hwy 26 east of Portland, the area around Sandy and East Clackamas County as well as some areas of the Willamette Valley.
