Welcome to the Irving Amateur Radio Club, Inc.

We are “The Friendly Bunch”

It is with extreme sadness that we announce the loss of our Radio Club Matriarch, Coleta Maxine Taylor, KD5QFH(SK). Coleta was involved with the club in so many ways and for so many years. Her dedication and enthusiasm was contagious and her attention to detail was sometimes frustrating. It makes you realize what a jewel she really was. With much admiration, love and respect, we wish her a safe journey home.
