Local & Regional Repeaters

Amateur Radio Repeater Group (ARRG) K7RPT Portland to Medford & eastern Oregon.

Oregon Connection–joint site for the Rogue Valley Linking Association (RVLA) and the Oregon Repeater Linking Group (ORLG).

Peak Radio Association–a spin-off of the Oregon Connection. These repeaters are always linked together. Coverage includes the entire I-5 corridor from just below the California border in the South to Longview, Washington in the North. Additional links include coverage in the Bend-Redmond area. Because the repeaters are permanently linked, wait 2 seconds after you key your PTT to speak.

JARS/ORCA–The Jefferson Amateur Radio Society (JARS) is an amateur radio club dedicated to emergency communications for an area of Southern Oregon and Northern California. Repeaters owned by JARS and the Del Norte Amateur Radio Club (California) are linked together to form the ORCA (Oregon-California) system. The ORCA system generally covers the U.S. Route 199 corridor from Crescent City, California, through Oregon’s Illinois Valley including the city of Cave Junction, to the city of Grants Pass, and neighboring communities.

Oregon Statewide Repeater List (50MHz – 1300MHz)

The list shows input/output frequencies, nearest city, call sign, contact, sponsor, intended coverage, the ARRL region, the ARRL listing codes,  and CTCSS (PL) access frequencies (at far right next to listing codes in parentheses). See below for the meaning of the ARRL listing codes.

Type Codes:  O = open | C = closed or private | A=autopatch |CA=closed autopatch |PL=Subaudible Tone Access (CTCSS) | P=packet | E=emergency pwr | L=Linked to other radios | R= RACES or similar | RM=Remote Base | TV=television | LINK=A point-to-point link.

    The ARRG repeater list shows three repeaters in Medford: the K7RVM repeater at 147.000+ (CTCSS 123.0 Hz), the K7RPT repeater at 147.020+ (CTCSS 100.0 Hz) that is on the ARRG linked system, and the K7FH repeater sponsored by WB7RQG at 147.060+ (no CTCSS). I take it that none of these are owned by RVARC. Is that all of the Medford repeaters? Which non-linked repeater do people use most?

  • Morris Prosser

    Should be “Tone” instead of “CTCSS”. I got caught by this when I first tried to check in to K7RVM repeater, until someone put me straight!

  • Rob Locher W7GH

    CTCSS (Continuous Tone-Coded Squelch System) is the generic term for PL tone or tone squelch.

  • W9PCi – 145.330-PL100 is open for use by licensed operators and is generally not linked but may be linked to 147.000 (K7RVM) or IRLP Node 7700 or Echolink. This repeater is located in Central Point and PL is generally OFF. I have another repeater (linked to 147.000 – K7RVM) located in Ashland near the POE on 146.620-PL100. Each of these repeaters may be used for “local” rag-chewing when not in use by ARES activities. 145.330 has IRLP access by simply entering the 4 digits of the node or reflector to connect; disconnect is as simple… just enter DTMF 73. Please feel free to use the IRLP Echo-Reflector on 9990 – 9999 to check how well your signal is being received by the repeater before using IRLP. Have fun! – Arlen W9PCi
