The STSRC is a club whose purpose is to promote amateur radio among the scouts of South Texas. We are a motivated group of amateur radio operators (Ham operators) who provide opportunities for scouts to further their knowledge in areas of radio communications and goodwill.
STSRC's main yearly function is to operate in the Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) which is a worldwide annual event that is held each October. This event has been on going for over 50 years now and attracts more the 400,000 people from all around the world to take part in this weekend of radio activity.
We also are a resource for scout leaders who are interested in particpating in a radio scouting event (JOTA, summer camp, weekend camps) and need help finding information and radio operators that are interested in helping scouts with this type of event. The STSRC website offers information regarding the radio merit badge, other radio-related scouting awards and the opportunity to use the KX5BSA call sign for scouting events. If you have any questions, please feel free to email the webmaster.
