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 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 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.
