Repeaters

OTVARC owns and operates three repeaters for use by all licensed amateur radio operators. These repeaters are funded by your donations and the dues of OTVARC members. We welcome you to join the club and support the repeaters in this manner.

Partnerships

The OTVARC Club repeaters are for general amateur radio use. We welcome you on our machines. If you find the machine useful, please consider helping us maintain them with an annual contribution. Good amateur radio practice is required of all users.

We have working agreements with Clackamas County, Mountain Wave Search and Rescue, and Portland Public Schools for use of the machines. If you encounter such use, please respect the priority event. The machines are used for community events several times a year. Your patience during these operations is appreciated.

If you encounter abuse of our machines, please report as much detail as possible in a timely manner to otvarc@gmail.com. Thank you.

Maintenance

Our repeaters are maintained by a volunteer crew. If you are interested in learning about repeater maintenance, please contact webmaster@otvarc.org
