GOALS AND MISSION
The USMA Amateur Radio Club (HAMS) is sponsored by the Electrical Engineering & Computer Science department and is licensed by the FCC as W2KGY. The goal of the club is to provide an educational environment which fosters enthusiasm in amateur radio and community service.
The club provides terrestrial and space radio communications support to the US Corps of Cadets and community, maintains a phone patch service, hosts both VHF and UHF radio relays, and participates in regional, national and international contests on the HF, VHF and UHF radio bands. W2KGY also provides support and resources to local radio enthusiasts to prepare for FCC licensing. Each year the club publishes a newsletter highlighting our accomplishments.
