Welcome to the Quahog Repeater Network!

The Quahog Repeater Network (QRN) was founded in 1986 by Joe-WA1TAQ and Bob-WB1FDY (SK).  Through the 1990s, QRN covered 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.

QRN has an IRLP (5920) and EchoLink (55920, N1JBC-R) node.  It is normally idle available for incoming and outgoing connections.  In times of severe weather, it may be connected to the New England Gateway (9123) so that users may interface with NWS Taunton, WX1BOX.
