CTARC Tenth Anniversary

Ten years ago, on the 3rd of June, the Central Texas Amatuer Radio Club was formed. At that initial meeting, thirty one amateurs gathered to start the new club. Those initial members formed the club to "further the exchange of information and cooperation between members, to promote radio knowledge, fraternalism and individual operating efficiency and to so conduct club programs and activites as to advance the general interest and welfare of Amateur Radio in the community", as stated in the Club's Constitution. Happy Anniversary CTARC!
