Southwest Oklahoma Repeaters

A number of repeaters have been restored to operation, thanks to the efforts of a number of Southwest Oklahoma amateur radio operators,:

146.79 is a wide area coverage split site repeater.
444.300 is part of the Lawton Independent Repeater Alliance system
147.345 is located near Granite, OK

These repeaters join  145.390,  146.715147.285442.050, and 444.650 in supplying amateur radio communications in addition to Echolink and IRLP from the area.

Steve Grayson, KE5BPLMark King, KY7D, and Dale Town, N5VX completed the trek to Navajo Mountain north of Headrick, OK to complete the work.  KE5BPL and N5VX are Amateur Radio  Emergency Services officials in the area.

Initial tests produced good results from a handheld in Altus to WX5LR in Sayre.

In addition to the standalone wide coverage repeaters, Southwest Oklahoma is blessed to have four linked systems.  Two are on VHF and two are on UHF.
