The TARC UHF Linked System

This repeater system is a stable platform to be used in times of emergencies by Amateur Radio Operators. It is designed to support the same area that the National Weather Service and Salvation Army cover. At this time, the system covers about 50,000 square miles of eastern Oklahoma, the southern edge of Kansas and western Arkansas; The central hub repeater is in Tulsa. The system extends to the north and east, to Bartlesville and Ketchum and Decatur, AR,

To the west the link has machines in Mannford, Ponca City, Stillwater and North Edmond. To the south and east there are sites at Mounds, Muskogee, Tahlequah, Cavenal Mountain near Poteau, Fort Smith, McAlester, Blu Mountain near Enterprise and Daisy OK.

The TARC manages and controls the system from the gateway repeater in east Tulsa on 443.85-Mhz. In Tulsa, this repeater system can link with two VHF repeaters for local Nets. The systems primary, designated use is for Weather Nets and wide area community support. A complete list of all the linked repeaters and their current status follows.

The system is open for use to all Amateur Operators at all times except during controlled nets, when traffic is directed through the Control Operator(s). TARC reserves the right to control this system and all systems linked to it.

PLEASE, NO LINKING OR VHF CROSSBAND LINKS, Base or Mobiles, are allowed without prior consent of the Master Control Operator. This practice is strictly enforced during emergencies. Equipment that is added to the system must meet TARC 's Technical Standards or it will not be allowed on the system. The reason for these requirements is to uphold the integrity of the system. Please contact Gregg Wonderly for Equipment and or Standards.

This system has been proven to work well with a 30-watt mobile radio and dual band 5/8 wave antenna. Base stations have greater access to the system.

We would like to take this opportunity to give "a big thanks" to KJRH (channel 2) and KTUL (channel 8) for tower space to place our link system antennas.

If you or your club would like to link into the system and/or your area is in a strategic location to provide beneficial coverage, please call us for more information. Additional financial support for this project is also being sought to help expand the coverage area.
