W5ECO - Houston ECHO Society
Welcome! The Houston ECHO Society is a general interest amateur (ham) radio club serving greater Houston Texas, founded in 1974 to provide autopatches and assist with emergency communications. ECHO stands for Emergency Communications by Ham Operators. Today cell phones have replaced most of the autopatches on repeaters, but emergency communications is always of importance to the community. ECHO maintains repeaters that may be used in times of emergencies as well as providing a pool of trained radio operators to assist in that effort. Houston is hurricane prone, so hams are vital if the area is hit by storms and bad weather. Click on a link below to learn more about ECHO. The club call is W5ECO.
ECHO will be celebrating 50 years next year. Go here to learn about plans for a special event station.
