We are a club of amateur radio operators living, working, and operating in and around Fort Stockton, and nearby cities. We are a non-profit educational and service organization.
All members of this club are also members of the American Radio Relay League, (ARRL). Amateur Radio is a non-commercial radio communication service whose primary aims are public service, technical training and experimentation, and communication between private persons. Amateur Radio operators are commonly called hams. Hams generally communicate with each other recreationally but also provide communications for others at public events or in times of emergency or disaster. Hams are licensed to operate radio transmitters by the Federal Communications Commission.
We are a friendly group of hams who are ready at a moment’s notice to provide reliable communications and are an integral part of the Pecos County Emergency Preparedness Plan, (ARES). Many local operators are also trained weather spotters (SKYWARN), and assist the National Weather Service (NWS) when we are hit by severe weather.
We support the citizens of our community in times of disaster and to provide radio communication to leaders of the local emergency management services. If you've arrived at our website - you probably already have your amateur license, are interested in obtaining your amateur license or at least wonder what amateur radio is all about.
Our group meets monthly to socialize, to exchange information and expertise about ham radio, and to conduct club business. Monthly breakfast meetings are held at 9am on the 1st Saturday of each month.
The RoadRunner Cafe is located east of Fort Stockton on I-10, Exit 264 Warnock road. Inside the RV park.
Anyone and everyone is welcome.
