The Amateur Radio Association at the University of Maryland (callsign W3EAX) is an ARRL affiliated, SGA recognized organization that dates back to 1933. We have a well-equipped shack chock full of ham radio equipment. This equipment includes HF and UHF/VHF equipment and Amateur Television and Satellite equipment. We also have a nearly complete electronics workbench, including soldering irons, variable power supplies, and test equipment. Aside from the techno-junk, W3EAX has a certain social charm, as people of diverse backgrounds sit around and talk about life, the universe, and radio. Why not stop by and check us out sometime? Find us in rooms 3111B and C, South Campus Dining Hall, which is on the side of the building facing the Smith School of Business. Our door is often open; if not, find us on Discord! We talk about all our future events and activities there. Hope to see you soon!
