Welcome to the BYU Amateur Radio Club

The Brigham Young University Amateur Radio Club is a place to learn and practice radio operating skills and to use those skills to serve the community. Come here to learn more about the Amateur Radio (or “ham radio”) hobby, build something cool during a build night, help out at a service opportunity, participate in a contest, or study for your own Amatuer Radio license.

During the school year, the club meets every Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM in room 3280 of the Wilkinson Student Center. Visitors are welcome! In addition to club meetings, a weekly net is held on the air every Thursday night at 9:00 PM on the club’s two meter repeater.
