UPDATE REQUESTS/RENEWAL LETTERS ARE GOING OUT. 11/14/12

We are in the process of contacting trustees whose repeaters had a status of OPERATIONAL at the last update. We have been concentrating on the SE District and that part of the project is nearly complete. I am now turning my attention to the NE District. However, you don't have to wait for us to send you a letter or an email as I am doing in some cases. You may use the on-line update tool here on the web page, or you can simply drop an email to the coordinator and let me know of any changes to your system, or one that says your system is still on that air, and nothing has changed.

ORSI has Learned that Rick K5RWX is now a Silent Key

In attempting to update his repeater listings we learned of his passing. He had coordinated some pairs in the last few years. The construction permit issued for a system on 443.125 in Caddo county is cancelled. Another system he was involved with was taken over by Bryan K5GSM.

Tulsa Amateur Radio Club, A Change of Plans

I met with officials from TARC this weekend, and they have decided that they will go ahead and keep their 145.11 pair and put it back on the air from the site they coordinated slightly SW of its old location in downtown Tulsa. They lost access to the original site because of an irreconcilable dispute with the site manager. Which is getting to be a familiar story in the Tulsa Metro Area.
