There is no longer a D-STAR Repeater in the Springfield area.   OMAR donated the OMAR D-Star Repeater to the Nixa Amateur Radio Club.  They have since converted the repeater system to a Yaesu Fusion Repeater which best supports their vision and plans for this area. You can access the new NARC Repeater at 146.775 Mhz.  It has a PL of 162.2.

The OMAR Group is now looking at a new approach as to how it can best serve the amateur community in this area.  We hope to have that determination solidified in coming weeks.  One area we have been considering is training: license classes for Technician, General and Extra Classes, as well as, to help amateurs grow and better understand amateur radio.

We have hosted an annual Hamfest each January for the past 9 years.  We are now discussing whether to continue that effort and if so whether to continue doing it in Brighton MO.  The Assembly of God Church in Bright have been great partners in supporting the Hamfests over the past 3 years.
