Special announcement. June 10/2023
It is with deep regret that the Wild Rose Network announces the passing of our friend and colleague Patrick Nelson, VE6CPT on Sunday April 2 at Foothills hospital. He passed away peacefully surrounded by family. Pat was a close friend of 40 years, of both Mike VE6AMC and Dale VE6CPK. He was well known to those who both assisted us, and supported our endeavours over the years. Pat was an instrumental team member in the early days of the SARA (1986) Network, and in the building of the Wild Rose network of amateur repeaters and facilities. Pat became a ham in 1981 and met Mike and Dale shortly thereafter, when he assisted with the tower work on what became the original VE6TWO repeater in Calgary. Since then Pat was an integral member of the group, and provided a wealth of expertise that enabled a number of significant achievements. These included the original analog wide area linking system between Edmonton and Medicine Hat, the Iparn Satellite link ,as well as VE6ONE, Alberta’s first solar powered mountain top DTMF link controlled repeater. These, as well as the host of achievements accomplished by the Wild Rose Group. He had a helping hand in all of the repeaters you see listed on our site. Pat will be missed, and we send out our sincerest condolences to his family. If you wish to send any messages of sympathy to pass on to the family, please email us via the site and we will forward.

As always we would like to thank the individuals that help keep all this hardware running.

May.01.21 The Wildrose Networks has implemented two DSTAR Repeaters on the West side of Calgary. The UHF repeater gives pretty good Calgary coverage as well as to the West. The VHF repeater coverage is mostly west of Calgary including Cochrane and Bragg Creek. See WRN Repeater updates for frequencies. Currently these two repeaters are linked to XLX196 and include a bunch of repeaters in the Ottawa area. For repeater/gateway access be sure to have Your Call set to CQCQCQ and RPT1/2 to the Local Repeater/Gateway.

Dec.29.18 D-STAR ONE Sparrow is now in orbit. The first contact was confirmed by K4KDR and EU1SAT. The world’s first D-Star message from space was recieved on 29.12.2018 by DK3WN. Click on the image in the upper right hand corner of this page to learn more.
Nov.01.18 Note that our coffee gathering has been suspended for now. See Coffee Klatch link or click here.
Nov.01.18 Note that VE6MPR is offline. All park repeaters that are active will be stand-a-lone. Also note that the DStar 1200 repeater has been removed and is now a FM repeater.
Oct.06.18 The 1200 Meg DStar repeater has been removed. No future plans are being considered at this time. The VHF/UHF DStar will continue to operate as stand-a-lone repeaters for now.
July.29.18 Please note that VE6WRN Gateway is now offline. If you did not have your callsign removed from our Gateway your DStar access should still be valid but you will not have access for now to add/delete terminals or update your profile on your callsign. Keep checking this page for possible updates as we move forward.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org Alternatively you can contact Dennis VE6BGZ at: email@example.com 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.
Apr.06.18 We have upgraded VA6TWO repeater in Calgary on 442.200 to a Quantar repeater now running FM/P25 modes. Please note if your do not want to hear the racket associated with P25 be sure you are decoding PL. This will silence your radio when P25 is active. PL for this repeater is 151.4 hz. Also this repeater has a 6 meter remote and 220 repeater attached at all times. For more inofrmation on frequencies contact Dale VE6CPK.
