The Grayson County Amateur Radio Club was founded in 1994. The club is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization that promotes HAM radio in the Grayson County area. Our Goal is to have fun with Amateur Radio and provide vital emergency communications services to our communities. Membership fees and Donations are greatly appreciated and are used to:
- Facilitate the club working with local government and other community organizations to provide emergency communications during hazardous weather and local area disasters or safety observation communications during local community events.
- Conduct special radio event stations that commemorate significant local historical events in Grayson County.
- The club participation in Winter and Summer Field Day operational events to hone our skills in both casual and emergency communications.
We do not require you to be a member of the club to participate in our events, so feel free to jump in and join in the fun. Whether you are a seasoned ham, just earned your license, or are interested in learning more about amateur radio, you are welcome in the GCARC.
Our Club meetings are held at 7:00 P.M the 3rd Tuesday of the Month at Mariachi’s Fine Mexican Food, 1909 Texoma Pkwy #103, Sherman, TX 75090.
Our Club nets are held at 8:00PM on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month on the W5RVT 147.000 repeater (+.6Mhz, PL 100).
