This online resource a public service of the STARC club to the local ham community. The Buy Sell Trade Net is NOT owned by STARC.

For the past 20 years a two meter net has been held to allow coastal bend hams to dispose of no longer needed equipment or to find something they are looking for. The only requirement is that it be amateur radio related. The South Texas Amateur Radio Club makes this space available for listings but is in no way responsible for the transactions between amateurs. See the latest net posting below:
