Coordinated Repeater Directory for Oklahoma - May 19, 2018

Repeater information was last updated 19-May-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 19-May-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 Any updates received afterwards will NOT be published in the ARRL Repeater Directory until the next edition.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.

145.27 Repeater in Bartlesville Changing Trustee

The 145.27 repeater in Bartlesville, Washington County NE district was transferred to Johnny N5XQK. It is a Yaesu Fusion machine and will operate in digital C4FM mode only. It is linked on the Wires X network. WHile currently a local coverage machine only, it may be moving to a 300' tower on the west side of town. Note there is a local coverage analog machine on 145.27 in South Tulsa.

Creek County Repeater on 145.43 Changes Trustee and Call Sign

The 145.43 repeater in Sapulpa has a new trustee, Jeff Day KC5RBH and is changing call sign from KE5OKT to KC5RBH/R. It will still be activated using an 88.5 PL tone. Jeff tells us it is currently down for repair. It is reported that the power amplifier had been down for some time. We will let you know as soon as it gets back up and running.

Discussed at the ORSI Summer Meeting during Ham Holiday 2017

A small group of ORSI members got together during the OKC Ham Holiday 2017. Since the turnout was small and our president Duane KC5NID couldn't make it. Also our NE, SE, and SW directors weren't there, we just held some informal discussions.

1. We want to stick with the format of alternating the site for the Fall meeting between the Enid Hamfest and the Texoma Hamarma in alternating years. Therefore, this years meeting will be at Ardmore during the Texoma Hamarama during the last weekend of October. (We might have an ORSI interest table at Enid, but no meeting this year.)
