License Testing

LibertyFest Events

The Edmond Amateur Radio Society, EARS, was founded in 1957 as a full-service amateur radio club. The club serves and assists the city of Edmond and surrounding communities through a number of radio communications activities including but not limited to: support for emergency operations, weather spotting, and parade marshaling. The club conducts HAM radio-related classes and technical workshops. For those interested in becoming licensed HAM operators, EARS provides American Radio Relay League (ARRL) volunteer examiner (VE) testing sessions. EARS members participate in weekly VHF, UHF and HF informational and fellowship nets, and work actively to promote and support numerous social and special events such as community QSO parties, Winter and Summer Field Days, the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon and Edmond’s LibertyFest.

Club Repeaters

EARS operates a 2m meter repeater on 147.135 and a 70cm repeater on 443.425. More detailed repeater information along with a link to the live online audio feed can be found on the repeater info page.

UHF Repeater

An 88.5 Hz tone is currently required to access the 443.425 UHF repeater. The tone was enabled in January of 2022 to reduce repeater interference. Operators who’ve used the repeater prior to the tone requirement may need to update their radio programming to activate the tone. 

If you have any questions, please contact Gary Stillman at

VHF Repeater Live Online Audio Feed Back Up

Fox 25 News Story

Saturday morning Fox 25 visited our Field Day site at Bickham-Rudkin Park. A journalist was on site for probably 40-45 minutes capturing video of our Field Day set up. We were still setting up but he did a great job capturing the essence of what we were doing and why. Please take a look when you have a minute. It can be difficult to get media coverage like this so I am very thankful for them making the effort to share our story.

K5ELO SK – Jack Sanders

It with great sadness that I report the passing of Jack Sanders, K5ELO. Jack passed away Monday night after a long battle that started with a devastating heart attack in January. Jack was a relatively new ham, earning his Technician class license in May of 2017 and his General class the next month. Jack was very active in club activities and a regular on morning commute rag chews.
His wife, Holly Sanders, has asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the EARS club, Jack’s real passion.
