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.

Raffle Winners Announced!

On Thursday, December 13, the members of the club drew for the winners of the Christmas Raffle.

The winning ticket belonged to Willis LeJune of Fort Davis. Willis will receive a $700 gift certificate to the Morrison Family of Stores in Alpine. A $200 gift certificate was won by Danny Flores of Alpine and a $100 gift certificate went to Dawson Young of Alpine.

The funds raised will be used to maintain the club’s repeater system and the Emergency Communications Van.

New Alpine Frequency

Alpine has a new frequency to access the club’s repeater system. It is an odd configuration and is only in test mode at this time, but as we work out the details, we hope we can make it permanent.
The frequency is 446.150 SIMPLEX with 146.2 PL tone. Do note, as you try to program your radios for this frequency, most modern radios may try to use an offset transmit frequency for 446.150. You will likely have to force the SIMPLEX operation.  FULL STORY HERE
