W2SZ is the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Amateur Radio Club. It is located at 6 Sunset Terrace in Troy, NY. W2SZ currently supports two cross-linked repeaters on 146.82(-) and 224.42(-). We have recently added to this list a machine on 443.00(+) which will be fully coordinated at the end of its verification period. A new Cushcraft repeater antenna was added to this machine, and some adjustments were made to the receiver to compensate. It should cover fairly well now.
We just bought a new IC-821 radio for the satellite station recently. Check out what is going on in the projects page.
Meetings occur every first Saturday of the month at the shack, but people can be found there almost every Saturday (after 2pm). There are a great many projects to be undertaken, such as: working on the satellite station, working on the HF antennae, and individual member projects. Or you can just come up and hang out at the shack and enjoy the company of fellow hams. Even if you are not a ham, but have some interest in Amateur Radio or electronics, you are more than welcome to stop by.
We recently got a new shack to keep ourselves happy in. This came as the result of a car deciding that the road (not even the information super highway) was right through the middle of the old building.
