Remember me

Welcome to the ARRL Oregon Section website
My goal is to make sure this website is always current during my term(s) as section manager. I want to have as many communication methods available as possible to hear what you in the Oregon section have to say. This is one of many ways for me to hear you. I welcome any suggestions for content. With the help of the section leadership, it will be added to continually. I look forward to working with you and am making plans to visit all the affiliated clubs in the state during my first year in office and hope to be able to participate in some of your activities. I have visited some ARES groups as well.

Also please keep in mind that this website is a work in progress and we will do our best to keep it updated with the information provided by our amateur radio community. Currently login access is limited primarily to the Oregon section cabinet. I am beginning to provide access to individuals designated by the DEC's for updating ARES-related information. As we make more features available you will be notified via the arrloregon Yahoo Group. Join the group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/arrloregon/.

I also send regular informational emails to the yahoo group. Much of what I send will appear in the next SM report, but by being in the yahoo group, you get advance notice of the news. I also forward messages that come from the ARRL to section managers that may be of interest as well.

If you have information that you want posted or updated on this page, please send to me at ab7zq@arrl.net. If you submit news to that link, please notify me that it is there so that I can go look for it. We receive a lot of spam messages at that link.

Oregon Section Club News May 2010
The Western Oregon Radio Club has completed installation of a complete Icom D-Star repeater system recently. All three digital voice repeaters are in operation as well as a 23cm D-Star digipeater. The voice repeaters are able to communicate through the US national trust server
and connect throughout much of the world using callsign linking or repeater linking.
The repeaters provide useful coverage in much of the Portland-Vancouver area and allow digital cross band communications between D-Star users locally. These repeaters are open for any amateur to use and may be accessed by visiting D-Star users who have registered with a D-Star system anywhere in the US.
The WORC continues to operate a large linkable system of FM repeaters on 10m through 23cm Bands in the Northwest corner of Oregon, providing coverage from Astoria to the Cascades, From Longview WA to south of Corvallis. For information about the Western Oregon Radio Club systems, see www.worc.info on the internet.
The Radio Amateurs of the Gorge new club website at W7RAG.com is now up and running. Before we had a website, hardly anyone besides members of the club knew we existed. Now, information about the club will be searchable and readily available to the public. The website will be a repository of newsletter articles, how-to’s, and features about events club members are involved in. Informative
things like frequency charts, net schedules, and lists of upcoming events can now reside on the
website, making them available from any computer. No longer will you have to be at your own desk or computer to look at a newsletter; you can now see it even if you are at a library or internet cafe.

The hams in Lincoln County report that REACH THE BEACH will be using the Mt Hebo 147.220 repeater all day on May 15. Approximately 3000 bicycles are heading for Pacific City from the Willamette Valley on that day. The safety, health, and welfare of all the cyclists is managed by a network of ham radio portable, fixed, and mobile units. Feel free to listen and monitor the activity on 147.220.
The McMinnville Amateur Radio Club (MARC) is honoring Betty Anderson, N7DRP who is turning 90 this month, who is one of MARC charter members. Congratulations Betty!
The Radio Operators Association of Dallas (ROADS) May meeting will be a dinner with limited “meeting”. It will be held on May 20th at 6 PM at Farroll’s Restaurant, located on Hwy 99 adjacent to the Polk County Fairgrounds. This event will be held in the banquet room and will NOT include the usual business meeting. Guests are welcome.

If your club has any news you would like to share with the rest of the Oregon Section, then please forward it to me. n7pat@arrl.net
