WA2HOM is the amateur radio station at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum. The museum is located at 221 E. Ann St. in downtown Ann Arbor.

We moved into our permanent space in October 2008, and are active on 40m, 30m, 20m, 15m, and 10m, operating CW, SSB, and digital modes. The station currently consists of a Icom IC-756PROIII transceiver driving either a 40m/30m inverted-V antenna or a three-element Yagi atop a 30-ft. tower on the museum's roof.

The station was made possible by a $10,000 grant from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a $3,000 grant from the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), and donations from other generous individuals. Part of this money has paid for the station and its equipment, part for a couple of "hands on" exhibits for the museum, including a hands-on crystal radio, a Morse Code display, and an exhibit that lets a museum visitor see his or her voice on an oscilloscope.

In addition to operating activities, we conduct ham radio classes and other educational activities. Since November 2009, our One-Day Tech Classes have enabled more than 100 people get their Tech licenses. The next class will be held sometime in January 2012. To register for the class, or for more information, e-mail Dan, KB6NU.

For those interested in what we're doing down at the museum, you can read all about our activities there by visiting WA2HOM.Org. You can also subscribe to theHamRadioattheHandsOnMuseum Yahoo Groups mailing list. Subscription is open to all.

If you're in the area, and would like to help us operate the station, please drop by. We're normally there every Saturday from 10 am until at least 2 pm. If you're planning to visit on another day, e-mail Dan KB6NU, and he'll arrange to have someone meet you down there.
