Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Coppell community was previously served by unincorporated groups such as Coppell Amateur Radio Club and Coppell Amateur Communication Club. As time as passed, these groups have disbanded. We hope to build upon these past efforts and reestablish an amateur radio group in Coppell that can be called upon in times of need to provide communications, help educate upcoming and new hams in the amateur radio art, and promote a collaborative environment wherein amateur radio operators share their knowledge and expertise with others.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Amateur Radio Repeaters

Repeaters enable amateur radio operators to transmit with a lower power level, and this equipment repeats what is heard on a slightly different frequency using much more power. This allows the signal to be received in a much larger area than by the low-power radio on its own. Any licensed amateur radio operator is welcome to use our repeaters, and in times where an emergency, disaster, public event, or other need exists, repeaters will be used for managing those incidents or events.

Population(s) Served

We recognize that after many new amateur radio operators earn their technician licenses, there are not many avenues for learning more about our art. We seek to create an environment of learning and exploration that promotes Elmering and collaboration among amateur radio operators.

Population(s) Served

We seek to id local governments and charitable organizations. Local events such as the Celebrate Coppell Parade Down Parkway and the Coppell 5k Run benefitting Coppell Special Olympics may benefit from communications provided by amateur radio operators, and we will be reaching out to area organizations to determine where and how we can assist.

Population(s) Served

High quality STEM experiences help students increase scientific understanding, develop critical thinking skills, and drive future innovation. Amateur radio provides an avenue towards scientific discovery and growth.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organizational plans are to:

Provide education and training to new and current amateur radio operators. Our tentative educational offerings will cover topics including earning your Technician amateur radio license, hands-on assistance with programming handheld amateur radios, and discussion on using internet technologies like EchoLink and AllStar Link to communicate globally.

Build the capacity of amateur radio operators so they can operate at their best in times of need. Options including the ARRL’s National Traffic System and software like Winlink Express enable amateur radio operators to move messages quickly and efficiently during times of need, and we plan to include such topics when providing education and training to area operators.

Aid local governments and charitable organizations. Local events such as the Celebrate Coppell Parade Down Parkway and the Coppell 5k Run benefitting Coppell Special Olympics may benefit from communications provided by amateur radio operators, and we will be reaching out to area organizations to determine where and how we can assist.

Work to ensure amateur radio operators participate in ways that upload the amateur radio community’s well-known courteous, helpful, and supportive nature. Members looking to participate in area events are required to adhere to a Membership Code of Conduct and promote the positive reputation amateur radio holds within our communities.
