W7AOR was first licensed as WN7AOR in about 1956 and then as W7AOR for a five year term and dropped out for over twenty-five years. He later relcensed and is involved in HF, and linkingVHF and UHF repeaters using Voice-over-IP (VoIP) including Internet Radio Linking Project(IRLP), Echo Link, All-Star and D-Star systems under club call sign of N7ARR (Nevada 7 Amateur Radio Repeaters). A second NARRI D-Star Gateway with call sign N7NDS (Nevada 7 Nevada D Star) is located near Reno on 7,800 ft Mt. Davidson (West of Virginia City).

NARRI added the latest Motorola XPR 8400 internet linked DMR repeater on a 10 dB antenna in East Las Vegas on 446.450 to its VoIP capability.

Currently W7AOR is ARRL Nevada Section Technical Coordinator and Chairman of Nevada Amateur Radio Repeaters, Inc (NARRI). He is also a member of Serria Nevada Amateur Radio Society (SNARS).  He is a repeat speaker at ARRL Nevada Section conferences on the use of VoIP for emergency communications. W7AOR was elected as ARRL Pacific Division 2008 Ham of the Year. He wasVice- President of EmcommWest,Inc which provided the ARRL NV Section Conference for many years.

IRLP Node 3210 was installed March 22, 2001 as the first node in Southern Nevada; Node 3290 was installed September 15, 2001; and Refelctor Node 9250, the "Western Reflector" installed December 12, 2001. Since then NARRI has added other IRLP nodes as well as Echoirlp on most nodes and the NV-GATE echolink conference server. NV-GATE is linked full time to the Western Reflector Channel 8 (9258) so Echo link and IRLP nodes can hold nets or just talk to each other. Channel 8 nets include NV Section ARES/Skywarn at 7 pm every Wednesday/Thursday and American Red Cross Communicators Net every Sunday at 6 pm on DCF-ARC Echo link conference  and IRLP Western Reflector 9257 . The *WORLD* conference server/IRLP  9251 and *HI-GATE* Echo link conference/IRLP 9250 is usd for World Wide Nets at 9 AM and 5 PM Pacific Time. VoIP nets may be scheduled by contacting W7AOR.

In addition to the IRLP Western Reflector, he provides the Western Reflector Annex with its ten reflector channels (9090 through 9099). Many of the reflector channels are integrated with Echo Link Coonference servers that allow for mixed nets, for allowing both IRLP and Echolink stations to communicate. See www.narri.org.

All the internet repeater linking systems built have been turned over to Nevada Amateur Radio Repeaters, Inc., a Nevada non profit and IRC tax-exempt corporation, for use by its members. NARRI equipment is always available for emergency services activities. See www.narri.org for details.NARRI is sponser of the ARRL Pacific Division ARES D-Star net held on D-Star REF014B. N7NDS D-Star is for the bennefit of Northern Nevada hams.  The default connection of N7ARR B and N7NDS B is REF 014B thus Northern and Southern Nevada is linked up via REF014B.

For eleven years, NARRI sponsored a VoIP confernece where presentations are given on IRLP and other VoIP methods. The annual conferencewas held in Las Vegas for nine year and on year at EMOMMWEST in Reno, lastly at the 2014 ARRL Nevada Section Convention that was held in Virginia City. In the first six years IRLP System Designer, David Cameron VE7LTD, was the favorite Key Note Speaker. The conference provides a great way to meet the node owners you talk to over the air.
