A big congratulations to the Barnett brothers Aaron, Zebulun, Eleazar for passing their exams last night. Zebulun and Eleazar passed their Tech while Aaron passed Tech AND General. We look forward to hearing you on the air when you get your call signs.

The really neat thing is there is a high probability that they will get sequential call signs!


Just a reminder and in case you don’t know the club has a email group!  To join simply visit and follow the instructions on adding yourself to the group.

Also I still have email addresses available for any current club member.  Your email address would look like this

If you are interested please contact me at and I will fix you up.


Due to our last club meeting being canceled because of circumstances surrounding hurricane Harvey, we will have a special called club meeting on Thursday 09/07/17 at the Jasper County Airport at our normal location at 7:00 PM

We have several hurricane related items to discuss before our next regular club meeting. It is important that as many club members as possible attend.

We will still have our regularly scheduled meeting and VE testing session on Sept 28th at 7:00PM

Field Day 2017

We had a very successful Field Day this year!  Look for more details and pictures in the gallery coming soon!

Echolink Update

The W5JAS Echolink node may be unavailable at times over the next few days during a local system update/upgrade.


The net control op list for the W5JAS 2m net has been updated for 2017!

If you would like to change months or if you are not on the list and would like to call a net feel free to let the current op know.

If you would like to change your month listed on the web page send a message to David KF5DHY@KF5DHY.ORG or send a message using the contact us link at the top of the page!


I would like to congratulate our club VE Team!  We have come a long way from our first testing session back last Field Day.  We are now officially a Field Stocked team which gives us the freedom to give tests “on the fly” if the need arises.
