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!
