When All Else Fails Ham Radio Works!

Over 350 Members Strong!

Welcome to the Austin Amateur Radio Club, an active affiliate club of The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) now in our 101st year! Our club normally meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 PM at Applied Research Laboratories at 10000 Burnet Road. These days, we meet on Zoom.

A Wide Range of Specialties

Our club members are active in all areas of Ham Radio, including digital and high frequency. Specialized areas include Field Day, Contesting, QRP, Digital Modes, EMCOMM and ATV.  Members can usually be found monitoring the 146.940 repeater ( – /107.2) – especially during morning and afternoon “drive time” hours. Come join us on-the-air!
