Welcome To the Grayson County Amateur Radio Club

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 appreciated and are used to:

1) 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.
2) Conduct special radio event stations that commemorate significant local historical events in Grayson County.

The special radio events held during the year are the following...

Perrin Field Special Event - May
Red River Bridge War Special Event- July
Eisenhower Birthday Special Event - October

The club participates in Winter and Summer Field Day operational events to hone skills in both casual and emergency communications.  Winter Field Day 2023 is already history, but proved to be an enormous success as it was held at the Eisenhower Birthplace for the very first time this past January. The 'Chili Cookoff' was added to the event, and it was interesting and fun to see who could brew up the best tasting chili of all who submitted their entries.
