Join us Thursday nights at 8pm…
The OHARC Thursday Night Net, is a weekly social net open to ALL licensed amateur radio operators. It’s the perfect time and place to ask a question, get advice, or simply tell your fellow radio geeks about what you’ve been up to lately. Tune in Thursday Nights at 8pm on the N5OAK repeater!
A little about us…
Formerly the W5MOT repeater, sponsored by Motorola, and in operation since the mid-eighties, this aged repeater and club needed an infusion of new equipment and members. In 2015 OHARC was constituted for this purpose and assumed the repeater equipment, site, and repeater pair license from the former club membership. The repeater was rebuilt and upgraded with a new Yeasu DR-1X System Fusion repeater, Waycom Duplexer, Arcom controller and a full-wave vertical dipole antenna. So while our club and the repeater equipment is new, our 147.320+MHz repeater pair has been active in Austin for over 30 years!
