The mission of the club is to provide students, faculty, and staff, with opportunities to meet with other individuals interested in experimenting with wireless technology, to create a space for people to learn more about amateur radio, and to provide community service through amateur radio.

Our antenna is a Mosley Electronics Pro-67-B six band beam antenna resonant on 40m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, and 10m.
