Keep an eye on the club calendar for more details as these events get closer.
Monthly Siren Test
On the first Saturday of each month, members of the Sachse Amateur Radio Association, working with Sachse RACES and other HAM operators, perform a test of the Outdoor Emergency Warning System. There are 8 sirens strategically placed in the city. Each month, HAM operators volunteer their time to ensure each siren is working properly during the monthly test.
Our number ONE goal in all our events is to have fun with a great hobby that allows you to meet interesting people around the world, without ever leaving town!
