We are Auckland Amateur Radio Club, which is Branch 02 of the NZART, with the callsign ZL1AA.

We are a friendly bunch of people who are interested in all things radio, ranging from carrying HF rigs up mountains through to crafting microwave equipment.

If you want to get your licence or have an interest in ham or amateur radio, we'd love for you to join us.

Away from the radio? No problem, we use the internet too. Slack is a website and app where members can chat and share content with each other. Our meetings are hybrid and can be attended via Jitsi.
