About the Club

The 285 TechConnect Radio Club - NAØTC was formed in 2006 by Steve - AIØW, Jim - KAØNZZ, and Nancy - KØNCC to provide a forum for technical discussions, presentations, and projects. We are an ARRL Special Service Club.

We want to provide a wide-range of learning for people interested in the technical and operating areas of ham radio to increase knowledge and license levels and provide a forum for technical learning and sharing of information. Everyone is welcome!

We are scheduled to be at Intercanyon Fire Protection District station #3, 8445 South Highway 285, for our 2018 regular meetings. Exceptions will be posted here.

Call for Participation

We're looking forward to a great 2018 for the club, but in order for that to happen, the club needs people to step up and help out. Specifically, we're looking for volunteers for the Fall TechFest. If you can help with this, please contact our TechFest Director, John Blakely – KEØORB.

If you would like to give a presentation at the TechFest, please contact our TechFest Program Coordinator, Jim Langsted – KCØRPS.

Call For Speakers

The club is always looking for speakers for our meetings. If you would like to share your knowledge of amateur radio operation or a related technical topic, or know of someone who can speak at one of our meetings, please contact Bill - NØCU.
