Special announcement



 It is with a very heavy heart that we advise of the passing of Jim, WB8YWA, Monday March 16.  Jim had undergone surgery and was recovering at home. On Monday he fell ill and his weakened body could not withstand the added stress.

Jim was a great friend and mentor to all of us. He will be sorely missed and leaves a void in all of our hearts.

Rest in peace my friend; your key has gone silent. --... ...--

Please keep his wife Sherry and her family in your prayers.

A memorial service and military honors burial will take place once the COVID-19 virus issue is behind us. When details are available they will be posted here.

our history

  • In 1982, a group of hams at TI Lewisville formed the Texans Amateur Radio Club. The club lasted until 1999, when the TI plant was closed down. At its peak, the club had about 60 members, plus a club station and a 2-meter FM repeater on 145.170 MHz. After the club shut down, the repeater was operated by a group of local hams until 2004, when it was taken out of service. It was later put back on the air in another location in Lewisville by Bob Landrum, W5FKN, and is now owned and operated by the Denton County Amateur Radio Association. 
  • In 2015, a new group of hams from the Lewisville area formed the current Lewisville Amateur Radio Association.
