The N5XU radio shack

The N5XU radio shack is located on the 10th floor of the mechanical engineering building.

We currently have two all bands HF transceivers and several VHF-UHF transceivers. A tower on the roof hosts VHF and UHF yagis, an HF tribander yagi for 10-15-20 and a 40-80 fan dipole. Certified members can access the room and operate the equipment.

  1. Greetings All:

    I’m a UT Austin Faculty Member ( Department of Physics since early ’70s). I’m nearing retirement, and have adopted amateur radio as a future hobby (FCC exams last September, call sign AG5MS). I’m interested in finding a contact list of UT Austin amateur radio enthusiasts, and may become active in some of the club activities. I also may have some lab instruments that I could donate to the club when I get serious about winding down my research lab: examples: LeCroy digital oscilloscope (GHz BW), 100 MHz 100W amplifier, regulated power supplies, etc.

    Please add my name and e-mail address to the club mailing list, and let me know of any faculty/staff/students interested in contacting me.

    Trull Professor of Physics
