   The Metrocrest Amateur Radio Society is an active radio club. We have many activities throughout the year related to a variety of ham radio interests.

Hams & Eggs

  The dining room of our beloved Whataburger on the tollway is open. Every Saturday morning, dedicated radio enthusiasts get together about 8:00 AM CT for breakfast and camaraderie. All Hams or Want-to-Be-Hams are invited to drop by.

The Net Formerly-Known-As-“Health and Welfare” Is now onThursday

  With the pandemic winding down (it’s still not over), the Health & Welfare net held on Saturday mornings is moving to Thursday evenings with a new name and mission. The net encourages hams to have fun and help one another with news and technical support. Net control operator Andy Parcel, KE5KOF, is looking for a Net Control Operator and Elmers to lead the discussions. If you would like to volunteer send Andy an email, Meanwhile, join us every Thursday (except club meeting nights), at 7:00 PM CT, on the 145.210 repeater, CTCSS tone 110.9. As always, please follow appropriate Repeater Etiquette.
