Participation and Contributions
Thank you for your interest in the N7PIR Repeater System! Currently the system consists of four UHF repeaters operating in the 440 MHz amateur radio band. Four repeaters are normally linked together full time creating one big system. When linked, any of the five repeaters can control access to IRLP node 3420. The Seaside repeater is a stand-alone machine (not normally linked) but can easily be connected with the others or with any IRLP node. The Seaside repeater is IRLP node 3430.
The N7PIR Repeater Group strives to maintain a quality repeater and linking system that is well balanced and not overcrowded. This ensures everyone an equal opportunity to use the system and communicate with others in a timely fashion.
We encourage anyone, of any age or background, that has an interest in amateur radio to consider participating in the N7PIR Repeater Group. The N7PIR Repeater Group always accepts donations to help cover some of the costs of the operation of the repeaters, and other expenses. Some of these costs are rental fees (over $50 a month), insurance, and of course general upkeep. All repeater equipment is privately owned, paid for by various individuals and supported by donations.
We appreciate support from regular system users. By contributing you will be supporting technical projects, system improvements, group activities and community support activities. In addition, we provide a fun and social atmosphere where one can feel free to get information on the latest aspects of ham radio or even solicit advice or help. Our members have a wide variety of knowledge and are glad to help. Please check our website for information on the many things we are involved in.
Donations, while appreciated are not required for use of the repeater or IRLP.
