About the Club

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 our 2020 regular meetings. Exceptions will be posted here.


Please join us every Tuesday evening on the 145.145 repeater for the TechNet at 7PM.

Officers Needed for 2020

The club will be needing new officers for the year 2020. We will have vacancies for both the President and Vice President positions (elected) and Programs Officer (appointed). If you would like to serve in any capacity, please contact Frank - KØFEI prior to, or at, the January club meeting.

Notice Regarding Membership

In prior years, we have always included TechFest attendees in our membership rolls. Beginning in 2019, membership in the club will be seperated from TechFest attendance. We would like to invite and encourage all interested amateur radio operators to support the club and become a dues-paying member. Dues are just $10 a year.

Call For Speakers

The club is always looking for speakers for our meetings. If you would like to share your knowledge of amateur radio operation or a related technical topic, or know of someone who can speak at one of our meetings, please contact our speaker coordinator.

Proposal for a club-sponsored remote station

The club is discussing the development and installation of a remote station for club member use. This station will be accessible over the internet and be capable of operating FT8, and possibly other digital modes, phone, and CW. We currently have a location available and some surplus equipment with which to build the station. The club is looking for a member to spearhead this effort, resolving the details and implementing the station. Other club members are willing to help as needed. If you are willing to help with this project, please contact Frank - KØFEI.
