Coordinated Repeater Directory for Oklahoma - September 8, 2018

Sun, 09/09/2018 - 19:33

Repeater information was last updated 08-Sep-2018.

The ORSI board voted to list all coordinations, where a trustee requested non-publication, we will only publish the frequency, city, county, coordination date and update dates. Then show it as a closed access repeater.

This Oklahoma database was published here as of 08-Sep-2018. The database is sent to the ARRL for use in their annual edition of the "Repeater Directory" at the start of the year (January). Any updates received afterwards will NOT be published in the ARRL Repeater Directory until the next edition. However, we will continue to update the listings on the ORSI web site periodically during the year.

TARC's 442.000 @ Mannford in Tulsa District to change frequency

Fri, 08/10/2018 - 17:26

The 442.000 at Mannford will move to 442.8 soon. This will still be part of the TARC Supersystem and will still be accessed using an 88.5 PL Tone. The reason given is that many of the Chinese made transceivers, for example Baofeng, have a receiver birdie right at 442.000 MHz. Making it difficult to tell if the frequency was actually in use. Since the Supersystem is used for Skywarn and ARES purposes, it is important that everything works properly. 442.8 was very clear at those coordinates in Oklahoma, and we received clearance for the change from Arkansas and Missouri.

NO ORSI MEETING @ Ham Holiday

Thu, 07/26/2018 - 20:05

The forum schedule they have published is from LAST YEAR! No arrangements were made for this year. We wanted to hold our spring meeting in Stillwater, but the Sirloin Stockade shut down. So we are out of a meeting place. We thought about doing Ham Holiday again, but did not get any arrangements made. I floated up that trial balloon, but only got one response from the ORSI board. So I guess we will see you in November at the Enid Hamfest. Which is a small, but mighty Hamfest. Hey cheap admission and it covers food too, can't beat that!
