A pre-Field Day meeting will be held at the
JSCARC's W5RRR station
on June 23, 2016, at 6:00pm.
Welcome to the Johnson Space Center Amateur Radio Club, located at NASA's
Johnson Space Center, 25 miles southeast
of downtown Houston, Texas. The club membership is made up of NASA and Contractor employees based
in and around the Johnson Space Center. The club is very active in various aspects of the amateur
radio hobby: On-the-air ragchewing, DX'ing, Contesting, Satellites and Public Service.
The members frequently support the numerous public service activities conducted around the space center:
fun runs, walk-a-thons, bicycle rides, parades, etc., which are conducted in the Clear Lake area.
The JSCARC has been very active in the past with the completed Shuttle Amateur Radio Experiment (SAREX), Ground-to-space operations and terrestrial (W5RRR/Schools) operations with schools, and operations with Russian Space Station Mir amateur radio station. The club actively supports the development and operations of the International Space Station (ISS) amateur radio (ARISS) activities.
The club callsign, W5RRR, is very well known on the HF, VHF and UHF bands. It has been, and continues to be, one of the most active of the NASA facilities amateur radio stations. There's nothing like getting on the air at W5RRR and being "Domestic DX".
