Crony Lunch (Thursdays @ 11 AM)
Join us for a weekly gathering of all those who are interested in ham radio or just chit chat with friends and cronies. We meet at Judy's Cafe, 3443 W. Campbell Rd (at Campbell and Jupiter) in Garland, at 11 a.m.
Weekly Information Net (Thursdays @ 7:30 PM)
Join us for the weekly Information Net on our VHF repeater (146.660MHz(-) PL110.9) or our UHF repeater (442.700MHz(+) PL110.9). Both repeaters will be linked for Information Nets only.
If you are using a dual band radio and listening to both repeaters, please reduce the volume of the repeater you are not transmitting on to avoid an echo when you transmit. If there are any technical problems the VHF repeater will be our default repeater.

Skywarn Training (2021 All classes are virtual)
Please check the SKYWARN site here for upcoming classes.
Come join us for this year's SKYWARN training. It's free and no registration is required; feel free to just show up.
9:00 AM - Noon (Basic Training)
1:30 PM to 4:00 PM (Advanced Training)
SKYWARN® is a National Weather Service (NWS) program developed in the 1960s that consists of trained weather spotters who provide reports of severe and hazardous weather to help meteorologists make life-saving warning decisions. Spotters are concerned citizens, amateur radio operators, truck drivers, mariners, airplane pilots, emergency management personnel, and public safety officials who volunteer their time and energy to report on hazardous weather impacting their community.
Field Day (4th Full Weekend in June)
Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
