Welcome to the club!
The HCARC is an informal group formed to help local ham radio operators share, learn and promote the hobby of amateur radio. It is our hope that HCARC will serve as resource for all those with an interest in amateur radio living in or around Hockley county. You are welcome to join the club, and you don’t have to be a licensed ham operator to be a member! The HCARC is a registered club with the ARRL. Hockley county is in the West Gulf Division, West Texas Section of the ARRL.
HCARC has been in existence for many years. Much of the club's history has been lost, as it went inactive for a number of years. No one seems to know the exact date at which it was originally formed, as most of the original and founding members are now Silent Keys. the club was re-activated in 2009. If anyone knows of any past history of the club, please let us know so we can record it for posterity.
