KK5W Club Call

Al Zermeno (SK) was a member of our Club for many years. He was always eager to help our Club in any way he could and participated in many public service events. He was a frequent speaker at our monthly Club meetings talking on complex subjects but in his own way he was able to make everyone understand the topic. He was the organizing force that installed and ran the radio room at M.D. Anderson Hospital. He was an Elmer to all Hams and a friend to all he talked to on the radio. Al retired from the medical field where he worked as a Physicist for M.D. Anderson for 25 years. Al was born in San Antonio, Texas and had four daughters.

BVARC - Serving the Houston Area, including Harris and Fort bend Counties and beyond

The Brazos Valley Amateur Radio Club (BVARC) is the largest, most active ham radio club in the Houston Area. It was organized in 1978, primarily as an emergency communications group available to assist the communities of Stafford and Missouri City when required. Since that time BVARC has grown and expanded its activities to bring together many diverse interests all over Texas.

Today, BVARC is truly a general interest club with an impressive record of public service. This commitment to service has been recognized by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) with the coveted status of Special Service Club. We are proud of our members who represent the finest in Amateur Radio. Membership is not limited to licensed operators, but is open to anyone with an interest in Amateur Radio.
