Getting N5XU Back Up and Running – A Commitment

Hello everyone, this is just a short post made in addition to Bob Ascott’s post of a similar nature.

I just wanted to say that the year following Sameer’s departure has been rough for N5XU as the people in charge of running the club started to get busy in the midst of taking over control of this organization. It’s going to take a while, but I feel as if everyone regularly involved with the club is excited to get things back up and running, recruit new members, and to create a solid foundation so that future generations of longhorns can continue the UT Amateur Radio Club’s legacy.

I will personally try to update this website more often for the documentation of club activities and technical pursuits.

N5XU UTARC is alive an well – despite few posts in 2022-23

The University of Texas Amateur Radio Club is alive and well despite few posts during the past year.

Our primary communication vehicles have been Slack, Discord, and the UT news group server. This site has fallen into disrepair and will hopefully get fixed up as an outward facing communications vehicle to the broader community.

Young Ho remains the president for 2023.

The shack is temporarily off the air due to construction in the area of the tower on the ‘shack building’ More information on this critical topic will be available in the upcoming weeks and months
