I may be relocating to the Dallas (Collin County) area.  Does anyone have information on clubs in that area?  Thanks and 73!  Tad, K3TD

Hello Tad.

Sorry for the delay in responding, us Texans pride ourselves on our hospitality.

There are several active clubs in the DFW (Dallas/Ft. Worth) area.
The DARC (Dallas Amateur Radio Club) is probably the largest & has one of the friendliest repeaters for new folks and visitors.


Take a look at these links:
 http://www.w5fc.org/
 http://www.lsic.net/net/dfwnet.html

Give us a holler when you're in the neighborhood.

All of us immigrants (I'm from California) have to work on our drawl but you'll pick it up quick.

Thanks, Jim!  Prior to my time in Boston I was in Atlanta for eight years, so I think the drawl will come back naturally ... as the saying goes - I wasn't born in Texas but I'm getting there as fast as I can!

I will look you up on one of the repeaters when I get there.  Thank you for the links.  Can I find any 10 and/or 6 meter (SSB or FM) activity in the area?  I work a lot of 10/6 SSB mobile from my Durango.

Thanks and 73,
Tad, K3TD

McKinney (serves all of Collin County, since it is centrally located) Amateur Radio Club (MARC) -- www.texoma.net/marc   .  I'm a member of this one.

Plano club is at www.k5prk.org .

Probably the best thing to do would be to go to the www.arrl.org web site and do their club search function.  See http://www.arrl.org/FandES/field/club/clubsearch.phtml .
