TX VHF FM Society Meeting : 1-3PM : Salon A-B-C
Summerfest is proud to host the Summer meeting of the Texas VHF-FM Society, where they will elect officers and handle business aspects of the Society.
The Texas VHF-FM Society is a group of several hundred radio amateurs with a special interest in the design and operation of VHF and UHF repeaters.
The first meeting of The Society was held on August 8, 1965 on the picnic grounds of Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. Forty-five licensed hams were in attendance, including five XYLs.
The Society now counts as members the licensees or technical custodians of nearly all the repeaters in Texas. Today, it continues in that role, minimizing intercommunity friction and helping the maximum number of amateurs operate and use repeaters. The Society educates, mediates, and arbitrates all matters of frequency coordination brought to its attention. The members of the Society invite you and your friends to join us; we know you will find it fun and rewarding to be a part of this organization.
