About Us

Ocotillo Hams are an informal group of local hams from the SE Phoenix Valley including Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Tempe, Sun Lakes, Maricopa, and any one else who wants to join us.

We meet frequently for social events such as breakfasts and lunches, portable ham radio events, “ham-beques”, and other friendly meetups where we can enjoy ham radio together, and renew our friendships or meet new friends.

We welcome new faces to join us, whether you are a new ham looking for an Elmer to help you get on the air, an old ham looking to get back into the hobby or just want to hang out with like-minded folks!
