The 285 TechConnect Radio Club - NAØTC was formed in 2006 by Steve - AIØW, Jim - KAØNZZ, and Nancy - KØNCC to provide a forum for technical discussions, presentations, and projects. We are an ARRL Special Service Club.

We want to provide a wide-range of learning for people interested in the technical and operating areas of ham radio to increase knowledge and license levels and provide a forum for technical learning and sharing of information. Everyone is welcome!

We are scheduled to be at Intercanyon Fire Protection District station #3, 8445 South Highway 285, for the remainder of our 2017 regular meetings.

TechFest is November 11th

The annual Fall Techfest is happening on November 11th, featuring 5 presentations on amateur radio topics. Please visit the TechFest page for full information.
