Proposed at the Fall Meeting

A group of trustees proposed at the fall meeting that ORSI begin to require coordination holders to update their repeaters with us every three years. Do you have a comment on this? Surrounding states require annual renewal of your repeaters. We would like to here you comments before the next meeting Spring of 2016. You may respond by email. Though the contact links on this web-site or contact any ORSI board member.

We may vote on this proposal at the spring meeting.

DMR Repeaters Accidentally Left Out of Database

The April 5th update of the coordinated repeaters for Oklahoma left out the new DMR machines that are popping up around the state. The software problem has been fixed, and a new update will be posted again soon. DMR repeater trustees do not be concerned, your machines are in the official coordination database. They just didn't get published on the web-site. I am also working closely with Bob W5RAB on getting the information correct on the DMR repeaters in Oklahoma. I am also working with ARRL on getting all the digital audio machines published correctly in the ARRL"Repeater Directory".

Digital Mobile Radio Comes to Oklahoma - aka Moto-TRBO

Digital Audio is making serious in-roads into Oklahoma with a series of DMR machines hitting the air-waves in Oklahoma, and we already have a number of D-Star machines around, now we've added another digital mode called Digital Mobile Radio. Marketed by Motorola INC under the trade name Moto-TRBO. However, you don't need Motorola Equipment to use the mode. Although I am told that for it to have the best network inter-operability The repeater equipment needs to be actual Moto-TRBO. Like D-Star Voice Over IP protocols are used to link the repeaters and users over the internet

The DCS code may be changed if interference with a repeater on the same channel with the same DCS code near Bartlesville occurs. Also on the same tower is an improved version of the 147.33 (+600 88.5 PL) down on the two meter band. The 147.93/33 machine also will respond to transmissions using p25 mode with a NAC of 293, however it only transmits analog FM.
