Updated 25 January 2021
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,
club activities have been modified.
Business meetings are being held
online only using BlueJeans.
Links to join the meetings are included
in the monthly meeting announcement e-mails sent to our
announcement maling list.
The Open Shack scheduled for 26 January 2021
has been moved to Van Leer room C456
(across the hall from the shack).
Open Shack events are being held in person
with social distancing safety measures in place.
All attendees must pre-register
before that month's event.
Rather than everyone gathering in the shack,
we will meet in a large, open area
to socialize, and anyone who would like to visit the shack
will be allowed to do so on a rotating basis.
Food from Chick-Fil-A will be provided by the club
to any interested attendees.
Attendees must adhere to the safety rules in place:
Face masks fully covering the mouth and nose
shall be properly worn at all times, except when eating.
Attendees shall eat only in their assigned spots,
and shall immediately replace their masks
upon leaving their spots.
Any additional safety instructions given by the officers
must be strictly observed.
Cooperation with these rules is necessary
to allow us to continue holding in-person events
for the foreseeable future.
Open Shack events will continue to be held monthly
and announced on our announcement maling list.
Attendees should meet at the entrance to the IDC,
just inside the main entrance of the
Van Leer Building.
Any other club events, including contests,
will include social distancing and other safety provisions.
Additionally, all safety rules pertinent to the event's location
must be observed.
Full details will be provided in the event's announcement.
A schedule of club events may be found at the bottom of our homepage.
Make sure to check there for any updates about our activities.
The Georgia Tech Amateur Radio Club, W4AQL, meets on the second Monday of the month.
Usually, people begin to gather at the shack, room E496-A of the
Van Leer Building,
on the campus of Georgia Tech, at around 6:30–6:45 PM to chat and play with our radios.
The meeting begins at 7:00 PM in the shack.
Archive of Minutes
Currently this contains minutes from the March 2010 meeting and on.
During normal meetings,
we discuss the business of the club
and welcome input from members in the decisions we make.
We welcome anyone interested in joining or finding out more about how we operate to come to our meetings
(and hopefully join).
On the fourth Tuesday of each month,
we open the shack to everyone affiliated with or interested in us.
More relaxed than a formal business meeting,
we serve pizza and generally get on the radios, work on projects, or just hang out and talk.
If you're interested in joining,
Open Shack is the perfect opportunity to get to know our club and its members.
We periodically hold an Amateur Radio Boot Camp
for people who are interested in getting a technician class amateur license.
We also hold monthly license exams for all license classes
in cooperation with the Atlanta Radio Club.
We regularly participate in various contests and other events,
which are generally announced to our members and posted on our calendar.
