K5GSM/R 442.3 near Granite has moved to Fay (near Watonga) and is now on 442.375

Trustee Brian K5GSM acquired a spot on a tower at the new QTH, but was slightly too close to another machine in the NW district, so we coordinated a new pair and the machine is now on the air from the Blaine county site operating on 447.375 RX/442.375 TX from an HAAT of 492 FT, and an effective radiated power of about 300 watts. The machine is linked to the 145.11 near Alfalfa in Caddo county which in turn is linked to 145.410 in OKC in order to help with Skywarn and emergency operations in NW Oklahoma.

Coordinated Repeater Listings for Oklahoma - July 10, 2014

Repeater information was last updated 10-Jul-2014.

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 10-Jul-2014. 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 Any updates received afterwards will NOT be published in the ARRL Repeater Directory until the next edition.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.

SKYWARN Repeaters

Listing only repeaters having SKYWARN usage. See additional information at the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Norman. Please send information or status updates to the ORSI Frequency Coordinator.

A Google Map view and a printer-friendly version is available.

ORSI 2014 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.

Muskogee Area to get a Repeater Running APCO 25 Format Soon

Joe WA5VMS has requested the 449.8/444.8 pair that is no longer in use in Mayes county to be re-coordinated for use in Western Cherokee County for a repeater running the APCO 25 Protocol. Which is a digital voice and data mode rapidly becoming popular on the Public Safety (I. E. Police and Fire) bands. I think this will be the only "P25" machine coordinated in Oklahoma at this time. There was one in the OKC area that I think was supposed to do D-Star and P 25 at the same time, but they decided to just make it standard FM instead. The same for 442.125 in the Bartlesville area.
