Two Tulsa VHF Machines Moving

Tulsa Amateur Radio Club applied and received approval to move their 145.110 W5IAS machine from downtown Tulsa to a more user friendly site in Southwest Tulsa, they also are moving their 147.045 repeater from Tulsa to Mannford in Creek County, where it will be co-located with their 442.000 repeater. Research of the database by the frequency coordinator showed the move of 145.11 to be a minor change and not cause any problems with any other coordinated repeaters on or near the channel.

New repeaters: 145.25 in Harrah is now on 145.15, a new 444.3 near Davis, 146.79 in Edmond and 145.19 Clinton

The K5UV repeater in Harrah, OK is now operating on 145.15 MHz. Since it is still below 100' HAAT ORSI reserves the right to put another 145.15 less than 90 miles from it. Also if you are near Davis (greater Ardmore) area check out KC5LBP/R on 443.00 +5 PL l00.0. Then we just received an update on the W5RLW/5 146.79 -.6 Pl 100.0 in Edmond (OKC). We also welcome to the airwaves KE5RRK 145.19 Clinton.
