  • Students Participate in Amateur Radio Club Competition

    Students Participate in Amateur Radio Club Competition

    The Amateur Radio Club of Electrical and Computer Engineering recently held an amateur radio competition on the Texas Tech campus.

    The competition was held on the grounds south of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Building on November 16, 2013. Participating students were from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and members of the Amateur Radio Society at Tech (ARSaT). The competition involved field-testing of antennas connected to handheld radios. Participants were asked to search and find the location of a small "radio fox" transmitter hidden on the campus by Dr. Michael Helm, an instructor for the department and the ARSat technical adviser. The transmitted signal carried a Morse code message to identify itself among other signals in the air. Each student proceeded on foot in the direction of the strongest indicated signal. Once the small radio transmitter was found, the participants celebrated the successful discovery. The competition was overseen by David Naugher, the staff adviser for ARSaT; Dr. Michael Helm; and Dr. Tom Trost, an emeritus professor in the department.
