The Texas DX Society, founded in 1970, is a non-profit organization of radio amateurs in Houston, Texas who have a primary interest in DX chasing and contest operating on HF, VHF, and UHF.  Many of the club's members regularly operate from rare amateur radio locations around the world for the expressed purpose of "putting out a new one" for DXCC credit to their fellow amateurs, or counting as a "new multiplier" for contests held on the bands each year.  To see a list of our members' worldwide operating activity, click here.  Our repeaters are frequently used for disaster communication, and for public service events like the Chevron Houston Marathon, Buffalo Bayou Regatta Races, and others.


We invite Houston area amateurs to get to know us by checking into our repeaters on 147.360 MHz (100.0 Hz tone access) and 442.000 MHz (103.5 Hz tone access).  Our DX cluster can be reached via the internet at URL port 7373.  Our 442 repeater has Echolink and IRLP enabled.  Click on the Echolink and IRLP tabs on the menu for more information.


Our club callsign K5DX is in memory of our long-time friend and fellow club member Clarence E. Sharp who became a SK in September 2001.  "Sharp" was a world famous DXer and contester, and an "Elmer" to all who needed one.  Our club grew and flourished under his leadership and guidance for many years, and his operating habits were an example for all operators to follow.


Our organization gets together in Houston, Texas on the third Thursday evening of each month for club meetings.  We usually meet at the Tracy Gee Center on the west side of Houston, and frequently have a pre-meeting dinner location nearby.  Check the marquee above for program info, time and location announcements, check the mail reflector, or current Bullsheet newsletter.  We try to have dinner meetings every other month for more social time and conversation.  If you're in the area, please join us! 


Membership in the Texas DX Society is open to all radio amateurs having a particular focus on DXing and Contesting. If you are interested in membership, please review the constitution then complete the included membership application.  We look forward to meeting you soon!
