W5YD Centennial Celebration

The W5YD Amateur Radio club will host its centennial celebration on the Drill Field on February 14th from noon to 4pm. (Weather permitting).

The Mississippi State University Amateur Radio Club received its Federal license in 1920. This year we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the club’s licensing.

Amateur Radio is a community service that employs electronics theory and experimentation for public benefit and promoting international goodwill through radio communications. Ham Radio serves as a first line of emergency communication when other systems go down. The club caters to students who are interested in applying their electronics and communications knowledge to radio technology.

Come celebrate with us on the Drill Field, say hello, and learn something about the club and about the hobby.
