Nevada Amateur Radio Repeaters, Inc


The purpose of Nevada Amateur Radio Repeaters, Inc. (NARRI) is to promote the development of amateur radio repeaters under the provisions of 47CFR Part 97 including, but may not be limited to, those linked via the internet, for personal enjoyment, public service during emergencies and natural disasters and, if applicable, home land security, education and any other lawful purpose. NARRI is a Nevada non-profit corporation, formed 7/10/2002, and is tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of Internal Revenue Code.

NARRI's radio repeaters and remotes operate under the Club Call Sign of N7ARR (" Nevada 7 Amateur Radio Repeaters") and N7NDS (N Nevada 7 N Nevada DS D-Star). NARRI repeaters  are integrated with the Internet Radio Linking Project (IRLP),  Echo link systems, All Star Linking or D-Star. NARRI owned equipment  includes various repeaters located in Nevada and Voice-over-IP conference bridges. The  IRLP Western Reflector has integrated Echo link conferences: WORLD, NV-GATE, CCNVARES, HI-GATE, DCF-ARC and ECS-ERC for multi repeater linking via the internet. The conferences have public service support as their reason for existence. 

ALL LAS VEGAS HAMS ARE INVITED TO TALK TO ANYONE THEY HEAR ON NARRI's LOCAL WESTERN REFLECTOR GATEWAY REPEATER 147.000 or 447.000 (-) PL 123 or other repeaters that may be connected AS OFTEN AS THEY WANT. A Reflector Gateway Repeater is one that is connected 24/7.

Most NARRI equipment is open for public use while others parts of the system may be reserved for member use only; see FCC Part 97.205(e); it says "Limiting the use of a repeater to only certain user stations is permissible." and NARRI uses this provision as appropriate to implement its charter. NARRI members have control operator status for the entire NARRI system. Non members, including visitors, must ask permission to control; NARRI feels a responsible repeater custodian must assure those controlling have the appropriate training and authority. NARRI has never refused a qualified visitor who asked to control on the system.

NARRI procedures define the way system equipment is operated. NARRI reserves the right to revoke control privileges of anyone at any time for violation of NARRI procedures or to limit the number of control operators, but there is no limit at this time. Donations of equipment, funds and time support NARRI growth, maintenance and public service activies and operational costs. NARRI is purchasing equipment for expansion of system capabilities and to assist with development of internet linked repeaters and RF links in other Nevada locations.
