WX5ASA Linked System

Welcome to the WX5ASA Echolink and IRLP information page!

The WX5ASA system is comprised of:

442.050+ PL 100 repeater in Altus, OK
146.895- PL 100 repeater near Eldorado, OK
147.285+ PL 100 repeater in Altus, OK (IRLP/Echolink node is on this repeater)


and the MicroNode radio connected to IRLP and Echolink which operates on 147.285+ in Altus, OK.  The node now has a small Uninterrupted Power Supply to help keep the node operational during power outages.  You will find the node on the SouthCoast Amateur Radio Service at 0800 weekdays, the HandiHams net at 11 a.m. weekdays, and the Voice Over IP Weather Net on Saturdays.

Also, on 146.79- PL 100, the group operates a wide area, split site repeater.

Here is a link to listen to your Altus area friends.


This system is open to all amateurs withing range of this repeater.  When using the repeater, please listen first to see that Skywarn traffic is not present.  When talking, key up for one second before talking and leave spaces between your transmissions so Internet users have a chance to talk.

Don't forget to use RepeaterBook to keep up to date with what is new around you.

Please use the Public DTMF codes to operate the Link.
