Try out Amateur Radio! Get a license, talk around the world! Build antennas and radios from scratch. Learn practical electronics. Come to our meetings, we can help with these things.

The most active portion of this page includes the club's minutes for past and future meetings. (2017 minutes)

See also the club records database and data source documentation.

See also the club calendar on Google calendar entry under UCF ARC. xml ical

We also have a mailing list. This is a main method of distribution of information.

Additionally, there is a club Facebook page.

The club also has a picture gallery of members' pictures.

We have started doing semi-regular testing sessions. Fill out this form if you would like to attend review sessions or our next testing session.

It's not the size of the antenna, but the SWR that counts.
