UCSD Student Organizations (2022 - 2023)

Amateur Radio Club at UC San Diego (KK6UC)

Educational Category

Academic Year
The purpose of the Amateur Radio Club at UC San Diego, licensed through the Federal Communications Commission (F.C.C.) as KK6UC and officially affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), is to provide UCSD students and staff with tools and opportunities to explore and enjoy the hobby of amateur radio. KK6UC is a member-focused club that can host licensing classes, teach different modes of radio, participate in contests, collaborate with other amateur radio organizations, and perform general experimental wireless communications. The club was founded on campus as WA6DOT (later KI6FTQ) in fall 1965 by Michael C. Ransom WB6KMH (now AI6II) and run for many years by Brian Kantor WB6CYT. The club recently completed the 25-foot tall Gap Titan HF antenna atop Atkinson Hall for its new HF station, greatly adding to its on-campus RF capabilities.
