Arctic Amateur Radio Club

AlasKit Radio Experimenters

For over 6 years, Eric and friends have met to convene on ideas and share the fun of HAM radio and experimenting with electronics with their own branch of the Arctic Amateur Radio Club. The AlasKit branch currently has 6 members and 100+ years of combined experience in Radio, and much more. We are working on prototypes for manufacturing and limited sale, including Eric's one-and-only commercially available circularly polarized High Frequency antenna. Several members are trained FCC certifiers or are in training to become one.

We welcome anyone who's enthusiastic about science and electronics and wants to learn!
