As always we would like to thank the individuals that help keep all this hardware running.  The cost of putting in the hardware has mostly come out of a few dedicated hams but the on-going cost is what we need help with.  Please check out this page to check your status.  And if you want to become a supporter or a member of the Wildrose please click here.

We currently support 1-6M remote, 4 VHF, 2-220, 3 UHF, 3-900 and 1-23cm repeaters.  We also support 2 different digital modes, Fusion and P25 (VHF, UHF, and now P25 on 900).  We also have other projects that are either implemented or being worked on and are available at this time to our supporters.

Current supporters for 2020:  VE6AMC, VE6CPK, VE6CPT, VE6BGZ, VE6ACR, VE6BJN, VE6EN

Oct.31.20 It's that time of year again where Insurance needs to be updated for all our repeater sites that are on commercial properties.

We ask if you can help support this as it would much be appreciated by either getting or updating your membership with the Wild Rose Network.  Of course any donation is also appreciated.

Over the last couple of years it seems like support has pretty much disappeared and little funds are available.  Only a hand full of dedicated ham operators still update and maintain our group of repeaters and most expenses come from them.

But to protect our self and our equipment insurance is a must and this year especially is where we need your help.

It's easy to send funds our way by using the PayPal button near the top of this page.

You can check the status of your membership by going to the WR Supporters by clicking on the Blue Botton near the Upper Right.

An remember to let us know if your are a RAC supporter as this will help lower our insurance cost.

Thanks            Your Wild Rose Network Team

If you can still support our group that would be much appreciated as we still have many repeaters that require attention from time to time and of course insurance every year.  You can use the PayPal button above. Thanks from the Wildrose Network Team.

Jul.05.18 
Please note that the gateway at VE6WRN will be shut down on July 27, 2018.   Due to the fact that the gateway is seeing very little if any use these days and the on going cost to keep it running, it was recently decided to shut down the internet.  A decision is pending on what to do with the trust server users database.  One decision is to either delete all calls from the database giving you the opportunity to register elsewhere or just leave calls on VE6WRN gateway computer however future access may be difficult but your gateway access will remain operational.  If you would like your call deleted please contact Dale VE6CPK.

In this digital world It seems most DStar users are using Dongles of some sort so the need of a local gateway repeater is not required.  They are costly to maintain and require a internet connection and without the support of its users it is just not sustanable.  The DStar repeaters for now will remain active and can be used locally.  You can still crossband modules however your channel setup will have to be done via the repeater controller and not the gateway.

If you have any concerns or questions please contact Dale ve6cpk at: dalegrant@shaw.ca    Alternatively you can contact Dennis VE6BGZ at:  dennis.chisholm@shaw.ca     Contacts are listed in the Contact section at the top of the page.

VE6WRN was the first DStar repeater/gateway in Canada that was privately own and has been on the air since 2007 (See CARDS).  DStar and other digital modes have seen a lot of changes over the years and its unfortunate that these changes have had such an inpact on clubs and repeaters.  As many users have chosen to use there private gateway connections there has been little need for repeaters/gateways.  I personally have gone with a SharkRF OpenSpot unit and I hear more activity there than I do on any repeater.

Its been fun and the hobby continues to grow in other ways, lets hope it all for the good.
