We welcome all visitors licensed or not who share an interest in amateur radio.
The KARS group operates a 2 meter repeater. The repeater, KT5TX with an output frequency of 147.200(+) and a PL of 141.3, is located in Katy at an elevation of 140′.
The KARS Net is held every Tuesday at 8:00 PM on the KT5TX repeater. (Click HERE for the net procedure)

The KARS group also meets every Saturday at 8:00AM at Alcaliente 20210 Katy Fwy on the north side of I-10 and west of Fry Rd for coffee and breakfast. Wednesday evenings around 07:30 PM a smaller KARS group meets at Starbuck’s also just south of I-10 on Mason for coffee.
In June of each year we gather to compete in ‘Field Day’ – a worldwide amateur radio happening. Pictures will be uploaded when available for this event.
KARS is also active in the Harris County Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES).
