This repeater network was built by Steve Hodell KA1RCI (now a silent key) and a team of dedicated hams who helped him. It is owned by his wife Sandy KA1RXB. Steve kept a detailed history of the network on his website ka1rci.net. Unfortunately, with his passing the ability to maintain the old site was lost. His wife, KA1RXB Sandy, unsuccessfully attempted to convince the hosting company to release access to her. It is no longer available on the internet. In the spirit of maintaining this historical record, we have replicated the contents of ka1rci.net here in the Archive section. The accuracy of the information contained in the archive get further from the current state of the network as it evolves, but it is still interesting reading.
The NB1RI Repeater Network is maintained by a group of dedicated volunteers who have generously donated their time, resources, and talents to keep it on the air. The network is currently maintained by the trustee Adam KC1KCC, the control operator Jeremy K1JST, and a team of volunteers. The names and faces may have changed through the years, but their efforts are appreciated by the Rhode Island Amateur Radio Community. Monetary support is provided by the RI Amateur Radio Emergency Communications Foundation.
Monetary support for necessary insurance, commercial services, equipment repairs, and upgrades provided by the RI AREC Foundation.
The original repeater equipment is owned by Sandy Hodell KA1RXB, the wife of builder Steve Hodell KA1RCI (now a silent key). Adam Paul KC1KCC is the trustee for NB1RI. Jeremy Taylor K1JST is the managing Director at the RI AREC Foundation.
If you use and enjoy the NB1RI Repeater Network we ask that you please help keep the systems up and running! You can show your support and donate to the RI AREC Foundation. Donations are tax deductible and support amateur communications networks like this one that are useful for emergency and auxiliary communications when needed, and benefit RI amateurs at other times.
Your contribution to the RI AREC Foundation helps cover the costs for these widely used services. You can make a one time donation or become a sustaining contributor by making it a monthly donation. The RI AREC Foundation is a 501c(3) charity.

Quahog Repeater Network
We have the capability to link with the Quahog Repeater Network when the need arises thanks to the efforts of Adam KC1KCC, Jed N1JBC, and the many others who work with them to keep things running. You may find QRN connected during various nets to test this functionality and expand our reach.
We work closely in cooperation with RICOMU/WA1USA on various projects. We are excited about their recent repeater network expansion and the RI Mesh Network work they are completing with a grant from the ARDC.
