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
Every Saturday morning a group of dedicated radio enthusiasts get together for breakfast and camaraderie at the Whataburger by the Wal-mart, northeast corner of Old Denton and the PGBT in Carrollton. The old hams start drifting in around 8 AM, and by 8:30 the place is rockin’! This informal get-together draws folks from Denton, Plano, Lewisville, Richardson and most everywhere else. Come join the fun!
