Our club is affiliated with the American Radio Relay League, Inc. — ARRL.  Many of our members participate in the many exciting contesting opportunities sponsored by ARRL and other special interest groups.  Amateur radio offers activities for any interest from CW to voice to digital —  the possibilities are endless!

The Panhandle ARC meets the first Saturday of each month at 9:30 a.m. at 1900 Line Ave, Amarillo, TX, 79102.  We cordially invite you to attend our meetings and join our club!

Testing for licensing is offered after every club meeting.  Contact John Laur, Testing Coordinator, for details and requirements.  Testing is free and is offered through Laurel VEC.

From Georgia Street, turn east on Plains (the first street south of the old railroad bed).  Plains will then become Line Avenue.  Look for the antennas 🙂

  1. Was wanting to know what would be a good resource to study to obtain a license to operate? Or if there were any opportunities to take a class and test the same day? Please advise if you can. I greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you for your time and have a blessed day.

    1. I think a favorite around the club is – I’ve used it myself and appreciated the “flash card” feature and the different study settings. Our club tests the first Saturday of every month – you’ll have plenty of time to get ready for the Tech exam 👍🏼
      Hope that helped!
