The Pitt Community College Amateur Radio Club seeks to encourage its students and members to explore all that amateur radio has to offer. Members learn thepurpose and function of amateur radio in the local community, as well as the technologies used to provide communications both locally and internationally. Members also have access to the club's amateur radio station located on the campus of Pitt Community College in Winterville/Greenville, NC.
The club was recently formed in 2009, and is currently growing. We currently operate a full service APRS station with digipeater and iGate features, along with 2 other stations for VHF, UHF and HF.
The antennas are atop a 55' Rohn 25 tower erected on-campus. A Hy-Gain TH-3JRS 3 element tribander is used for HF, and a Cushcraft Ringo Ranger II towers above the tribander for VHF/APRS. A side mounted Comet triband vertical is used for several VHF/UHF radios.
Our HF rigs are an Icom IC-7600, IC-736, and IC-7000 (for portable operation). We also have several VHF radios and a quad-band Yaesu VHF/UHF radio.
