From the President
Welcome! The Amateur Radio Club (W5TC) is a registered student organization of the University of Oklahoma. Our ARRL-affiliated club has existed since the 1920′s. We are not connected with any school or college within the University of Oklahoma, but we are housed with the School of Meteorology. Our club repeater is the W5TC DSTAR repeater (444.750 +5.00) located at the National Weather Center, and we have a “mini-shack” on the observation deck of the National Weather Center on the south campus of the University. We participate in numerous contests (including ARRL Field Day and ARRL School Club Roundup) and volunteer events throughout the year.
If you’re a ham on campus, an alum, or just interested in amateur radio, we’d love to have you on board! Our regular monthly meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Check the Events calendar for the location (which varies from month to month). Our membership dues are a very affordable $15 per year and give members access to a steadily-growing inventory of radio equipment. Thanks for your interest!
The Amateur Radio Club exists to promote and support Amateur Radio at the University of Oklahoma. Our specific objectives are:
- To educate members and the public regarding the uses and responsibilities of Amateur Radio;
- To provide members with support for their technical, educational, experimental, and other Amateur Radio activities; and
- To serve the community however possible in times of need.
Meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of every month. The meeting location changes from month to month so keep an eye out for changes.
