W5HTK 145.29 On the Air From New Site

The Enid ARC moved their 145.29 machine to a 250' tower located near Goltry, OK. northwest of Enid. Solid mobile coverage from Harper Kansas on the north, to south of Watonga, to Waynoka on the west, and east to Ponca City. May be usable in Perry for mobiles. The PL tone is 141.3.

TARC's 442.000 @ Mannford in Tulsa District to change frequency

The 442.000 at Mannford will move to 442.8 soon. This will still be part of the TARC Supersystem and will still be accessed using an 88.5 PL Tone. The reason given is that many of the Chinese made transceivers, for example Baofeng, have a receiver birdie right at 442.000 MHz. Making it difficult to tell if the frequency was actually in use. Since the Supersystem is used for Skywarn and ARES purposes, it is important that everything works properly. 442.8 was very clear at those coordinates in Oklahoma, and we received clearance for the change from Arkansas and Missouri.
