Club History
San Antonio Radio Club from 1919 to 2007

Bexar County's Communication Resource since 1919
The San Antonio Radio Club is one of the oldest Amateur Radio clubs that
is still around and operating. It was founded in 1919 as the "Bexar
County Radio Association" and reorganized in 1929 as the "San Antonio
Radio Club". We are one of the oldest affiliated amateur radio Clubs of
the American Radio Relay League (since January 2, 1920).
