SaturdayBreakfast and Meeting


The Sierra Blanca Amateur Radio Club actively promotes and supports amateur radio in Lincoln County, New Mexico. We are based in Ruidoso, NM, located in the south-central region of the state, and we serve a county the size of the state of Connecticut!

In addition to regular club meetings, our activities include:

  • We operate and maintain two open VHF FM repeaters
  • We support the emergency communications needs of Lincoln County
  • We provide public service communications support for local events such as the Grindstone Trail Run, The Fort Stanton Endurance Ride, and the Tour de Ruidoso 100 Mile Bicycle challenge
  • Our experienced instructors conduct training for people wanting a new license or to upgrade an existing license
  • Our cadre of Volunteer Examiners conducts amateur radio license examinations as needed
  • We convene every Saturday morning for breakfast, to conduct training on various topics, and to conduct club business starting 8:00 AM at El Paraiso Mexican Restaurant, 721 Mechem Dr., Ruidoso, NM (in the Sierra Mall)

Whether you are new to the area, an occasional visitor, or long-time resident we invite you to join in the fun. Everyone is invited.  If you desire to become a club member, here is the Membership Application Form
