The Heart Of Texas Ham Operators Group, or HOT HOG, is a non-profit organization of Amateur Radio operators (“hams”) in central Texas. The group’s origin was Brady, Texas, which lies just a few miles from the geographical center of Texas (aptly named the “Heart of Texas”). The organization now represents hams from several central Texas counties including McCulloch, Mason, Menard, Concho, and San Saba.

The organization has changed over the years and gone through varying stages of activity.
