• General

    Thunderbird Amateur Radio Club meetings are open to all interested members and people interested in joining. The meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm.

    We usually have a show-and-tell and social time from 7:00 to 7:15, and then follow with club business. The presentation usually gets started at around 7:30 pm or so, and ends by 9:00 pm. Some of our past presentations are online.

    General meetings are held in Room 147 at the North Phoenix Campus of Northern Arizona University, 15451 North 28th Avenue, Phoenix (northwest corner of I-17 and West Greenway Road).
