ORSI 2013 Dues are now due.

ORSI Dues of $10.00 are now due. While coordination of repeater frequencies is a free service of ORSI, we do have some routine expenses. Plus by joining ORSI you can have a say in the direction the society is taking. We won't meet again until this fall, so you will need to mail your check in to either the coordinator, P.O. Box 512, Owasso, OK 74055-0512 or preferably the treasurer, P.O. Box 862, Mooreland, OK 73852-0862.

Changing of the Guard

Finally, our new treasurer Jay Kruckenberg K5GUD of Mooreland is assuming his new duties. We will soon have a new account established with a new bank and a new mailing address for members to send their dues. In the meantime you can send all correspondence financial or for coordination matters to box 512 in Owasso, OK 74055 and we will see that it gets to Jay. Outgoing treasurer Jerry Sams N5KNU closed out account in the Oklahoma City area and turned all funds and financial records over to Jay at the meeting held during the Enid hamfest.

Coordinated Repeater Listings for Oklahoma - November 2, 2013

Repeater information was last updated 02-Nov-2013.

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 02-Nov-2013. 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 Any updates received afterwards will NOT be published in the ARRL Repeater Directory until the next edition.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.

Robeert Tully KA5EOS SK

We received notice from his son Michael K5KZV that Robert unexpectedly became a silent key on May 5, 2013. Robert was the long time trustee of the KA5EOS 147.105 repeater located at Guthrie. The Tully family wants the repeater to stay on the air, so they have turned it over to Michael Campbell W5KSU. The ORSI board extends our deepest condolences to the Tully family over the passing of Robert. The repeater will come back on the air soon as the W5KSU repeater on 147.105 still operating from the same location as it always has.
