Welcome


The S&T Amateur Radio Club is open to everyone including students, faculty, and staff of S&T, as well as community members.

The club was formed by students of the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy in 1931, and is still actively serving the community to this day.

The S&T Amateur Radio Club is a very active amateur radio organization. We participate in many activities throughout the year, including November Sweepstakes and Field Day. The club maintains assorted radio equipment for our members to use.

Meetings and Shack Location

Our shack is located in Room G-29 of the Emerson Electrical Company Hall (EECH). We usually meet Tuesday at 5pm every week. Every other week we have a regular meeting, while weeks in between meetings are Open Shacks. We also hold an on the air meeting (net) on the club's 145.45MHz Repeater every Saturday at 5pm (while school is in session)

Check out the About Page to learn about more of what we do.

Impedance Matching 101 - October 2017 (1).pdf
Presentation on impedance-matching from Ward Silver (N0AX) an alumni of the W0EEE club and UMR '78.The presentation covered an overview of common impedance-matching methods used in amateur radio and electronics, what impedance matching is, why it's useful, and a few details about some of the more common techniques. It's not a design seminar - more like an introduction to the terms and concepts.

Ward is the Lead Editor of the ARRL Handbook and the ARRL Antenna Book. He is the author of all three ARRL License Manuals and the Q&A Study Guides along with writing the monthly QST column "Hands-On Radio." The ham radio detective mystery, "Ray Tracy: Zone of Iniquity" is his contribution to the dramatic side of ham radio. He serves as a Contributing Editor to the ARRL and consults on a variety of projects and programs in the ARRL Contest Branch. You will also find his byline in the popular Wiley "for Dummies" series; Ham Radio (now in its 2nd edition), Two-Way Radios and Scanners, and Circuitbuilding Do-It-Yourself.

An electrical engineer, he designed microprocessor-based products and medical devices for twenty years before beginning a second career as a teacher and writer. Ward was first licensed in 1972 as WNØGQP and enjoys DXing, contesting (elected to the CQ Contest Hall of Fame in 2015), and participating on his local ARES emergency communications team. He is a co-founder of the World Radiosport Team Championships and is President of the Yasme Foundation.
