  • IN C OLO R: The April Newsletter is now available

  • Monday Night Public Service Net will return to the 146.94 (PL tone 167.9) on Monday, January 6.  Many thanks to the Texas DX Society for the use of the 147.36 repeater during the time that the 94 repeater was out of service.  Also, thank Pump Fawcett, WA5CYI , for allowing BVARC to use the 94 repeater for many activities.

  • BVARC April Membership Meeting will be on Thursday, April 11 at 7:30 at the Eldridge Conference Center:  The topic for April will be a presentation concerning the world of Navy MARS (military affiliate radio service).

  • Board of Directors Location Change. BVARC Board of Directors Meetings held each month on the 1st Thursday will not be at the Fuddruker’s location. To begin in February on 2-6-14, The BVARC BoD meetings will be held at Bayland Park 6400 Bissonet in the Bayland Park Community Center in Southwest Houston. This move was made to better conduct BVARC BoD club biz and get away from the loud food fellowship entertainment environment.

  • Anyone wishing to contribute to the repair and upgrade of the 146.94 repeater may use the Paypal link in the right window on this page.


  • ELDRIDGE PARK RECREATION CENTER is off Eldridge Road just north of the West Airport intersection.  Here is an area map and a detail map.  (Doors open at 7:00.)

  • The club meets every month, usually on the second Thursday (7:30 PM) of the month, at the Eldridge Park Conference Center (see above).  Also, BVARC members frequent the 146.94 (167.9) repeater and hold a Public Service Net every Monday at 8 PM on 146.94 (167.9). In addition, BVARC sponsors a HF net on Wednesday nights. It meets on 3910 +/- 3 khz. This net is allows each member to comment on current events and includes club announcements. The Brazos Valley Amateur Radio Club is a public service club serving Fort Bend County and Southwest Houston. The club was founded in 1978 and has been active in social events, license classes, administering amateur radio license tests. It provides support for city and county emergency management communication operations. Members provide support for many charitable events such as walks and bike rides.
