  • 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.)

  • 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.

  • 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.
