Welcome back Sooner Hams!

Can you beleive that we're a month into the semester already?  Me neither. 
  So how is it that I am *two* months behind?

Anyway, OUARC is having its first official meeting of the year.  Date is 
this coming Tuesday, September 24th, at 6:30 PM local time.  We'll be 
meeting at the National Weather Center in the smaller auditorium, Room 
1350.  We try to meet on the 4th Tuesday of each month (not the *last* 
Tuesday).  If you are a member of the OU community, please wear your ID as 
a badge when you enter the building!

We will be giving an overview of the club and what it does and giving a 
tour of the WX5NWC/W5TC radio room on the 6th floor of the NWC.

Dues are due ($15, check or cash, payable to the OU Amateur Radio Club)! If 
you can't make it to the meeting, the treasurer works in the National 
Weather Center, "room" 3445 and would be happy to take your money.  Being 
dues-paid will give you access to the radio room in the National Weather 
Center (after proof of license and some training on the equipment).  We 
will also have some radios for loan - details at the meeting.

If you are not yet licensed, OUARC does co-sponsor an entry-level amateur 
radio class that runs from the beginning of the Spring semester until 
Spring Break.

Don't want to wait that long? Self-study manuals are available (in the 
library, even!) and testing is conducted here in Norman on the first 
Thursday of each month - see http://w5nor.org/license/index.html for 
testing details.

OUARC is also very active on social media.  Follow us on Twitter, @w5tc, 
and "like" us at http://facebook.com/OklahomaStudentAmateurRadioClub.  The 
club website is http://w5tc.org/ and has minutes from previous meetings and 
other club information.

Here is a list of local VHF/UHF repeaters:

444.7500 MHz, +5.000 MHz input,  W5TC repeater (requires D-STAR radio!)
147.0600 MHz, +600 kHz input, 141.3 Hz tone, W5NOR (SCARS repeater)
147.0600 MHz, +600 kHz input, 100.0 Hz tone, remote receiver at stadium
443.7000 MHz, +5.000 MHz input, W5NOR (SCARS repeater)
444.3500 MHz, +5.000 MHz input, N5KUK

Currently out of service: 146.8800 MHz, -600 kHz input, no tone, N5MS 
graciously allows us to use this as the "OUARC" repeater.
