Announcing a joint venture of the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum and amateur radio operators who live in and around Ann Arbor and southeastern Michigan. Staffed entirely by volunteers, this ham radio station serves to educate and excite visitors about amateur radio, as well as teach them about radio and electronics. The station acts as a central hub, supporting activities including transmitter hunts, license classes and radio construction projects.  Stop by the station to see who's on the air.  Our radio operators routinely reach stations in far-away states, and depending upon atmospheric conditions, can sometimes reach stations around the world!

To make Hands-On HAM Radio a success, we’re looking for more people to get involved. If you can spare some time, we could use your talents to operate the station or talk to Museum visitors about amateur radio. If you don’t yet have a license, the station offers occassional licensing classes.

For more information about the station or about licensing classes, contact

Dan Romanchik, KB6NU, at 734.930.6564 or cwgeek@kb6nu.com
