VE Testing News:
Our group is operational with W5YI-VEC and we are administering tests.  If you are a prospective ham, or already a ham looking to upgrade your license, send an email to info at w5sfa.org for information or to schedule your test..

Repeater News:
The DG-ID (digital squelch ID) of the Bellville UHF repeater is now set to 00, so it will pass all traffic.  Make sure to set the DG-ID to 00 on your transceiver - see the  page for more info on how to change this.
The downtown Houston repeater is being temporarily relocated to Cat Spring, until its new home in Wallis is ready.
The Columbus repeater is now set as Digital C4FM Only, DG-ID of 00.  It is linked with the Bellville repeater via Wires-X.  So if you transmit on Columbus, you'll be heard on Bellville and vice-versa.
