The Big Thicket Amateur Radio club was formed in 2002 when 8 local HAMS desired to form an association of persons interested in Amateur Radio. Their purpose was to further the exchange of information and cooperation between members, to promote radio knowledge, fraternalism, individual operating efficency, and to conduct club programs and activities to the general intrest and welfare of the Amateur Radio Community. They also agreed to assist with communications when called upon by the Local Office of Emergency Management, Fire, Law Enforcement or other official governmental agencies in times of emergencies or disasters.

Since the club's inception, the club has grown and continues to become involved in the governmental and civic arenas. Members have been involved with many civic activities including the Don Allen Sport's Day held in the Wildwood Community each Spring, Big Thicket Bike Bike Tour and other events.

The club has a VHF repeater located in Kountze and is open to all licensed Amateur use. It has the Frequency of 145.230, negative offset with a pl tone 103.5. Every Thursday evening at 7pm we have a weekly net and hope you will join us.

The club is also proud to announce their "ARRL Affiliated Club" recognition.

All persons intrested in Amatuer Radio communications are invited to become members.
