Upcoming Events:

Charge up your batteries and dust off your go box!  We are all set to have a joint RIP with our fellow hams from the Washington County club.  The location is at the Jim Bishop Pavilion in Chelsea Park on Palm St in Bellville.  Coffee and donuts will be available.  Start time is 8 am until we get tired.​​​​

Repeater News:
The Club's Bellville repeaters have been reconfigured.  The UHF repeater is now C4FM digital only, and the VHF repeater is now FM Analog only.  However, the repeaters are interconnected so analog traffic on VHF will be heard on digital UHF, and vice-versa.  Please note that if you are using UHF digital, the DG-ID must be set to 00 for transmit and receive.

New Club Officers for 2019-2020:

President:            Ray Chislett, W5RAC
Vice-President:   Gary Baldwin, KF5ZRT
Sec/Tres:             Kathy Croker, KB5ITB

W5SFA Weekly VHF Net: 

The Stephen F. Austin Radio Club weekly net meets every Tuesday at 7:00 PM on the Club's Bellville VHF repeater (analog FM) or the UHF repeater (C4FM digital).  See the REPEATERS link to the left for frequencies.

All licensed hams are welcome to participate.

We have also started a CW practice session, held immediately after the VHF net on 6m.  The frequency is 50.300Mhz.  Join us or just listen in!
