The Alamo Area Radio Organization (AARO) is a nonprofit Amateur Radio organization, club call sign AA5RO, dedicated to assisting the community through radio communications, and the enjoyment, appreciation, and the sharing of knowledge and advancement of Amateur Radio. The purpose of this site is to provide club news and messages from the AARO Board to club members, and to present information that might be useful to HAMs anywhere.


Gilbert Santana (N5CDA) has become a SK. His family thanks all of you who attended the various funeral events for him.

To honor Gilbert’s memory, AARO has established a scholarship to be given to a deserving college student. More about this in later posts.
