Club RoomsABOUT US:

The Hamilton Amateur Radio Club Inc. was formed on 12 March 1923 and became a Branch of NZART in 1932. The first meeting of the Hamilton Amateur Radio Club, as a branch of NZART, was held in the RI's room in the Public Library building on the 13th April 1932, with 23 people present. It included George Anchor ZL1FP, Alan Seacombe ZL1BW and Eric de Lacy ZL1ADM life member and club historian.
Our Club rooms are located at 88 Seddon Road, Hamilton.
We currently have about 35 members who are involved in various aspects of Amateur Radio.
As a Branch of NZART, the Hamilton Amateur Radio Club Inc. supports NZART and encourages all Radio Amateurs to belong to the National Association.

The History of the Car Radio

This is an article that was  shared with us by Dylan and his father. Dylan has been part of a group of 10 - 14 year olds attending a fun radio and broadcasting history class.

How to Solder Metal

We have also had this suggestion from Ethan, a young Scout working towards his Radio Merit Badge. He discovered the article while looking into how to create a crystal radio.
