Welcome to Auburn University Amateur Radio Club (K4RY)

Overview Upcoming Events
image.jpgThe Auburn University Amateur Radio Club (AUARC) operates under the call sign K4RY. 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 station is located in 411 Broun Hall. Our main HF radio is a Kenwood TS-450S running at 100 Watts (or less). We use a Mosley Electronics Pro-67-B six band beam antenna for 40m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, and 10m. The antenna is directional and our rotator is unfortunately broken right now so it is fixed pointing east.

We welcome anyone who wants to learn more about amateur radio. Current contact information and meeting times for the club should always be available on the club's AUInvolve page below.
