Tue, 04/04/2017 - 10:15

Repeater information was last updated 03-Apr-2017.

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 03-Apr-2017. 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 Any updates received afterwards will NOT be published in the ARRL Repeater Directory until the next edition.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.
