Hello again everyone sorry it's been so long since my last post but life during the Holidays was very hectic. Since my last post Steve KD5DRW has added an EchoLink Station to the 147.120 repeater on Node# 367874.

The Echolink station for the WX5OKM repeater is temporarily down due to a computer crash. Give me a week or so and I will have it good as new.

 Also NWS Storm Spotter Training March 10th at 7:00 p.m. at the Creek Nation Mound Building.

Also don't forget Green Country HAMFEST is almost here, March 14th and 15th In Claremore, Oklahoma!!!! I can hardly wait. Check there link at the top of the page for details.

Hello everyone and welcome to fall. Just a note to let you all know that I updated the OCSA Repeaters page with pics of 2 of the repeaters. Let me know what you think. If you want anything added just let me know. The ECHOLINK is now on a dedicated computer so it should be up about 99.8% of the time, let me know if you have any problems with it.

I would also like to be the first to wish you all HAPPY HOLIDAYS and a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Just so everyone is up to date. We now are running on the new Icom repeater on two antenna's versus the one we where running on. That was most of our problem before. Turned out there was nothing wrong with the Motorola  repeater, we discovered that one of the duplexers came apart and it had to be repaired. The slight issue I thought we had with the NHRC-2 was nothing more than the can/antenna problem. I took the repeater receiver and transmitter to Wynn Radio and they completely checked out good. So the Motorola repeater is now on Ebay to reimburse Steve (KD5DRW) for his generous contribution of the Icom repeater. I will be posting pic's of the Icom repeater soon. Try out the repeater and send me any reports you have. Thanks and 73's

Don't forget Happy Mothers Day!!

Well Hamfest has come and gone. It was a pretty good turnout. I was able to upgrade to a General license finally. I was able to see some old friends and make a few new ones. We will have some new members very soon and when the votes are all in I will list them here on the website. Soon we will be having some regular monthly meetings that will help us coordinate for the upcoming storm season. More info on the meetings are coming soon. I was going to buy myself a Yaesu FT-2800 at Hamfest but they were on backorder. So I ended up settling on the Icom IC-2200 two meter for my shack. I will test it out and let you all know how decent it is. I have powered it up and put a few local repeaters into and so far so good, but it has only been a day. No I did not get the optional digital module for it, too expensive. Just so everyone knows Steve Linnett, KD5DRW has advised me that the club is welcome to use his repeater as needed in our SKYWARN efforts as well as ours. The KD5DRW repeater is on 147.120 + in north west Okmulgee County, it has great coverage and reaches well into Creek County and into Tulsa County.

We thank Steve for all his help in our efforts.

In the meantime keep your heads up and your radios turned on.

God Bless.

 

Through a generous gesture from The Indian Territory Radio Society the Okmulgee County SKYWARN Association has been given our very first repeater. 147.225 + is now the frequency for the Okmulgee County SKYWARN Association.  Special thanks to Bill Griffin NI5X, Dave Lugo W5TAZ, Tom Moore KD5BOW and Joel Meeks KC5UGY for the repeater donation.
