The purpose of the Society is

  • To render public service through Amateur Radio, and
  • To gather and disseminate information concerning Amateur radio operation especially in the frequency modulation mode and repeater operation, and
  • To coordinate efforts and establish standards in regard to repeater systems and associated functions, and
  • To associate with groups similarly constituted in order to broaden the scope and function of Amateur Radio as a service in the public interest, convenience or necessity, and
  • To encourage experimentation by the Society members in advanced techniques in the use of repeaters in order that the general technical excellence of repeater systems shall be improved, and
  • To provide a forum for discussion of spectrum utilization and the achievement of maximum compatibility between various users of the Amateur Radio Bands.

TARC's 442.000 @ Mannford in Tulsa District to change frequency

The 442.000 at Mannford will move to 442.8 soon. This will still be part of the TARC Supersystem and will still be accessed using an 88.5 PL Tone. The reason given is that many of the Chinese made transceivers, for example Baofeng, have a receiver birdie right at 442.000 MHz. Making it difficult to tell if the frequency was actually in use. Since the Supersystem is used for Skywarn and ARES purposes, it is important that everything works properly. 442.8 was very clear at those coordinates in Oklahoma, and we received clearance for the change from Arkansas and Missouri.

NO ORSI MEETING @ Ham Holiday

The forum schedule they have published is from LAST YEAR! No arrangements were made for this year. We wanted to hold our spring meeting in Stillwater, but the Sirloin Stockade shut down. So we are out of a meeting place. We thought about doing Ham Holiday again, but did not get any arrangements made. I floated up that trial balloon, but only got one response from the ORSI board. So I guess we will see you in November at the Enid Hamfest. Which is a small, but mighty Hamfest. Hey cheap admission and it covers food too, can't beat that!

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.
