We have learned that the 443.875 PL 162.2 AD5RM machine in OKC is back in operation after completion of antenna repairs.
The 147.225 N0GB repeater that was coordinated for Cheyenne in Roger Mills County is now on the air from a site near Mayfield in Beckham County, close to the border of Oklahoma with the Texas Panhandle. The trustee, Guy Baker, now has a new call sign W5LWV. A PL tone of 114.8 Hz is required to key the machine and it is open to all radio amateurs. We calculated the HAAT of the repeater to be about 120 ft. It should provide good coverage to Beckham county.
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.
We just received an update from K5NOV that the KF5RDI 146.865 in Perry NE district, is now an Echo Link node, the repeater is accessed using a 141.3 PL tone and is open to all.
In the SE district coming soon to Stigler, a repeater on 145.25 PL 141.3 and 442.650 also 141.3 PL.
In Central Oklahoma it is now confirmed that N5KUK 444.75 repeater is now dead, and has been reborn as W5TC 444.75 D-Star operated by the OUARC, W5JA is the trustee.
