About Ham Radio and W6YX

What is Amateur (Ham) Radio?

The Stanford Amateur Radio Club (W6YX) consists of about 50 students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members. Members are active in many aspects of ham radio including:

The club is a University-affiliated student organization and was formed sometime in the early 1920's (rumor has it as 1922), and has been more or less active ever since. We have been affiliated with the American Radio Relay League, the national association for amateur radio, since 1924.
