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 by Remote

  The dining room of our beloved Whataburger on the tollway is open for now. Drive-through is also available, so if you wish, you can pick up your favorite breakfast at the window. Better yet, stay at home and scramble your own eggs.

*Want to be NCS for the Saturday H & W Net? Let Andy know,

  Each Saturday at 10:00 AM CDT, MARS will host a Health & Welfare Net on our 145.21 repeater (offset -6 kHz; tone 110.9). This will be a semi-controlled net. There will be a net control but it’s informal and open-ended. We want to know that you and yours are safe, and if there is anything another member can do for you.

  And you can share the radio projects or other fun things you’ve found to do. You might give someone a good idea.

  As always, please follow appropriate Repeater Etiquette. Until then, we’ll see you Saturday (or any other day) on the radio.
