The Big Bend Amateur Radio Club is based in Alpine, Texas and covers the entire Big Bend area of west Texas. The club is open to anyone interested in amateur radio activities.  Join us at our monthly meeting or on the air via one of our weekly nets.

Technician Class…

The Big Bend Amateur Radio Club will sponsor a licensing class beginning on March 5, 2018. Upon completion of the class, students will be able to take the Technician Class exam for a Ham Radio License with all the privileges associated with that license class. Cost of the class is $29.95 which is the cost of the license manual. There is a nominal cost also for taking the exam. The class will be held one night per week at the Sul Ross Turner Range Animal Science Center, Room 130 beginning at 6 p.m. Each class will last about 3 hours. For additional information contact Bill Brooks, KE5OG, at 432-244-8863 or bill.ke5og@gmail.com.


Important Notice

At our January meeting a motion was passed imposing a $15 per member financial assessment for the purpose of improving the club’s financial position so that we can afford maintenance for the club’s RV which has been long deferred.  Members may add the assessment to their annual dues if they have not yet been paid, bring funds to the next regularly scheduled meeting, or mail a check to the address on the web-site’s About Us page.  A fund raising committee is also being formed to address the club’s longer term financial needs.
