Kendall Amateur Radio Society

We are a Texas nonprofit corporation organized and operated to advance the knowledge of the Amateur Radio Service in Kendall County and to the support the City of Boerne and the Kendall County Governments with emergency radio communications. The noun "Amateur" as used in Amateur Radio, describes a person and/or organization who engages in a pursuit, on an unpaid rather than a professional basis.
