The Hockley County Amateur Radio Club is located in the South Plains region of Texas, based in Levelland.
The HCARC has been here for many years. Our focus is on public service to the community, county and surrounding area. We have aided a large number of events, assissted emergency services, conducted fund raising activities for worthy causes and watching the sky when severe weather threatens.
Our main focus is in supporting the Levelland and Hockley county public service agencies and the National Weather Service.
Our weather activities are generally conducted via our chase group CHASEONE.ORG. Via that group, we provide weather observations and reports directly to the NWS office in Lubbock, Hockley county and Levelland public safety agencies. A link to that group is provided on the menu.
