Coordinated Repeater Directory for Oklahoma - January 1, 2024

Repeater information was last updated 01-Jan-2024.

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 01-Jan-2024. 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 Any updates received afterwards will NOT be published in the ARRL Repeater Directory until the next edition.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.

A n Updated Database to be Posted Soon

I know it has been some time since I updated the repeater listings on the web-site. It's been some time since we had an ORSI meeting. The pandemic curtailed meetings, and we lost our meeting place in Stillwater when the Sirloin Stockade closed down. We may see if we can get some time at Ham Holiday this year. Green Country Hamfest is coming up soon, but they are short on meeting space, so it's usually kind of out there. I will be in attendance there and have the computer with me if you have updates on your repeater systems.

Elk City 444.525 UHF machine to Change PL Tones

The WX5BSA 444.525 repeater near Elk City switched from an 88.5 Hz PL tone to 141.3 Hz. This was at the request of Dan K5FVL who has a repeater on the same frequency at Stillwater which likewise used an 88.5 PL tone. The Stillwater machine is part of the TARC Supersystem which is a network of linked repeaters covering eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas. This link system is vital to support the Eastern Oklahoma - Northwest Arkansas Skywarn net. That in turn supports the National Weather Service Forecast Office during severe weather.
