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.

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

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.
