Oregon Coast Repeater Group was formed in January 2004. Chairman and contact person: Daron Wilson, firstname.lastname@example.org
W7GC call sign trustee: Roger Lincoln, email@example.com
The Oregon Coast Repeater Group is a consortium of professional volunteers dedicated to providing hardware, software and technical support for non-profit ventures involving public safety, emergency services, APRS, and weather data reporting systems.
The group is comprised of licensed Amateur Radio operators who are Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) members which provides for a stable, reliable group who have been background checked and possess photo ID. The members are actively employed, semi retired, and retired communications professionals.
Projects include six APRS weather repeaters on the Oregon Coast in Lincoln and Tillamook County: UHF repeater systems operating on 440.900+ (118.8) and 441.250+ (118.8) from Mount Hebo; Future r.f. linking between 440.900 on Mt. Hebo and 444.750 in Newport; Broadband data connectivity to Mt. Hebo; Repeater site video security in real time: and other related projects to support emergency services and RACES activities.
OCRG also operates uhf repeaters on Otter Crest near Newport on 444.750+ (118.8) and in Lincoln City on 442.600+ (100.0). The Otter Crest system rebroadcasts NOAA SAME weather warnings in the event of an earthquake or tsunami.
Additionally OCRG is responsible for engineering and maintenance on the Mt.Hebo 147.22+ (100.0) system. This includes a standby repeater at the OCRG site on Mt Hebo. OCRG also provides system maintenance for Lincoln County Emergency Services on the 147.04+ (100.0) repeater in Lincoln City and 145.37+ on Otter Crest.
The group is supported by donations and fundraisers. We welcome involvement from the amateur community, however some of our sites and systems are security sensitive and personnel may require clearance prior to accessing a site. OCRG is on the web at www.ocrg.org
