The club station, W2CXM, is located in the North Tower of Barton Hall. All licensed club members may use the equipment in the station, 24 hours a day. The station is active on 80-10 meters, SSB and CW, and on 2 meters/70 cm, all modes. Occasionally, the station is also active in contests or Field Day. Currently, the club is in the process of rebuilding after a construction project. We now have HF stations on the air with two antennas, and are working on a satellite set up to help support CubeSats
Current station equipment on HF includes a Kenwood TS-2000, Icom 746, a H
B9 vertical for Multiple Bands, and a Force 12 CX4 yagi at 100' for 10-40 meters.
VHF station equipment includes a Kenwood TS-790 UHF/VHF all-mode transceiver and several 2 meter and 440 MHz directional antennas.
The club also operates a 2 meter APRS Digipeater, and a 2 meter repeater at 146.610Mhz -600 offset with no tone.
