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 names and faces 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.
The NB1RI Repeater network was built by Steve Hodel (KA1RCI/SK) and a team of dedicated hams who helped him. 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 may vary from the current state of the network as it evolves.
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). Paul Silverzweig W1PJS 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 contribute to the RI AREC Foundation to help 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.
