We've created an area of the website to allow other hams to post their news directly to this website. Check out our new News Blog and let us know what you think!
We want to invite all of the Ham Clubs post their own upcoming meetings and event news.
Blog authors wanted. Contact us via email if you want permission to post your own ham related news stories on the Blog.
Field Day is a nationwide ARRL sponsored event on the fourth full weekend of June where many local ham clubs set up in a field environment to simulate the operation of amateur radios under emergency conditions.
While there is a contest aspect to Field Day, the real objective is to give members experience operating in an austere environment like those that may be faced in emergency situations.
It's that time of year again to start up those generators, dust off those solar panels and charge up those batteries. Oh, and get your temporary antennas tested and move those radios from the boxes over to the field day location of your choice.
ARRL has a list of registered Field Day sites nationwide at this link, http://www.arrl.org/field-day-locator , but some clubs choose not to get registered prior to the event weekend. Just put in your city / state in the search bar to find your nearest event location.
To read more about the events scheduled for happening June 22-23rd 2019 in the San Antonio Metro area, please click here.
What is the purpose of the SanAntonioHams.org web site?
San Antonio Hams is the only local ham web site that collects and distributes information about all of the local San Antonio and South Central Ham Radio Operations, Clubs, Groups and Organizations in one convenient place.

It is our hope and intention to increase awareness of, and participation by, the local Amateur Radio community. We always strive to keep updated on what's happening in this area so that you don't have to search dozens of web sites and hang out on multiple radio nets all over the radio frequencies and calendar. We have listings for over 20 local groups / clubs that have some connection to Ham Radio, plus links to regional and governmental agencies of interest.
