ORSI Needs a Meeting Place This Spring

Tue, 01/29/2019 - 19:29

We went last year without a business meeting. One of the reasons was that our traditional spring meeting location, the Sirloin Stockade in Stillwater shut down. A quick look at Google Maps showed that in early 2018, nothing had taken its place. If you know of some eating establishment in Central Oklahoma, say OKC, Stillwater, Guthrie, or maybe Edmond, that has a meeting room we could use, please let us know. Stillwater was a great location, because it's about halfway between OKC and Tulsa.

Some Surrounding States Starting to Put Repeaters on What Were Simplex Frequencies

Sun, 01/27/2019 - 21:49

We've recently received some clearance requests from AR and I believe MO to clear repeaters on frequencies like 145.45. Which have traditionally been used for FM simplex. I believe they are using these frequencies for some of the digital audio modes, such as DMR. They might be simplex DMR hot spots, since 145.5 to 146.0 is reserved for amateur satellite operations. Otherwise they may be using a + offset. I'm not sure how this works.
