Welcome to the Big South Fork Amateur Radio Club.
Serving The Big South Fork Region Since 1992
The Big South Fork Amateur Radio Club is affiliated with the ARRL and meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7:00pm ET. We would normally meet at the Scott County Mayor’s office: 2845 Baker Hwy, Huntsville, TN 37756 but it is currently closed. So instead join us on the 145.350 repeater!!
Our club has multiple Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) units covering Fentress, Morgan and Scott Counties in Tennessee and partially McCreary County in Kentucky. We offer VE testing normally after our club meeting all we ask is you contact us to confirm your intent.
Our next club meeting is April 9th at 7pm ET.

bigFCC grants license to local hams
The FCC has granted call sign KM4BEK to the Morgan County ARES group for their radio station located at the 911/EOC building in Wartburg.
ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) is a nationwide organization trained and equipped to provide back up communications to Public Service agencies, especially the Emergency Management Agency (EMA) if normal communications is disrupted.
In addition to providing back up emergency communications, the ARES group also provides communications for various community events such as foot races, horse rides, concerts and sporting events.
