Club Info and Repeaters

The objectives of the Hurst Amateur Radio Club are:

  • to promote the proper use of Amateur Radio
  • to educate the users of radio equipment
  • to aid in disaster/emergency communications
  • to promote, generate and encourage interest in Amateur Radio

Club members serve as weather watchers for the National Weather Service, partner with the City of Hurst as part of RACES (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service), assist with crime watches to aid local law enforcement agencies, and provide communications for public service events.

The club was chartered in 1966 with 16 members, has functioned continuously since and currently meets at the Hurst EOC (Emergency Operations Center), which is on the second floor of Firestation #2 at 837 West Pipeline Road Hurst, TX on the third Monday of each month. The meeting starts promptly at 7pm.
