Welcome to QRN!

Based in Southern New England, the Quahog Repeater Network (QRN) is a linked repeater system covering Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.  Repeaters are linked via RF to the 440 MHz network hub in North Providence.

The hub is also the home of IRLP node 4259 and EchoLink node 4259 (N1JBC-R), which is connected to the New England Network (IRLP 9120 and EchoLink 9129 *NEW-ENG*) virtually full-time.  While connected, additional repeaters and simplex nodes may be tied into the system.

Brief History

QRN was founded in 1986 by Joe-WA1TAQ and Bob-WB1FDY (now a silent key).  Through the 1990s, QRN continued to cover a large portion of Rhode Island with 220 and 440 MHz coverage.

Thanks to the efforts of Bruce-KR1Z, Jed-N1JBC, Jeff-N1ZZN and Rick-W1RJC, QRN was brought back to life in 2012 with the full-time RF linking of seven repeaters across four sites, including the original Newport and North Providence sites.
