Athens Amateur Radio Club patchAARC Repeater

K5EPH 147.220 + CTCSS 136.5

Our repeater, K5EPH, now requires CTCSS tone access of 136.5. For those without tone generators in their radios, you may dial 11 to temporarily disable the tone access. This step was taken to reduce interference, not to exclude anyone! All licensed hams are welcome.


Mark your calendars for June 26th & 27th 2021 for Field Day. AARC is making plans now. Come join us at one of our monthly meetings to learn more.

AARC Monthly Meeting

Third Saturday of each month, 9AM, at The Athens Café, 607 E Tyler St # 106 - Heritage Square, Athens, TX 75751.

Skywarn LogoWe're the Henderson County Weather Spotters!

The National Weather Service contacts AARC to activate the Weather Net. The Net is conducted on the repeater, and Storm Spotters are dispatched to remote locations. Weather information is reported to the Net, and the Net Controller sends it to the National Weather Service.
