History

Once, long ago, mighty herds of Sooner Hams roamed the airwaves of Central Oklahoma, radiating their wisdom far and wide. Now, a small band of airwave warriors seeks to unite the scattered amateur radio enthusiasts of OU and reclaim those glory days of old.

The club has existed in various incarnations since the 1920’s. It has been known as the Alpha Sigma Delta Radio Fraternity, the OUARC, informally as the “688 autopatch club”, and has operated under the W5TC callsign. After a brief hiatus, the club reorganized over the summer of 1995 and is looking forward growth and glory in the years to come.

The FCC has good overview of the amateur radio service.
