About the Tortolita Radio Club of Tucson, Arizona

The Tortolita Radio Club is a group of Amateur Radio operators aiming to just have fun with an emphasis on HF operation. The club is named after the Tortolita mountains near Marana but serves the greater Tucson area and beyond. Among the key points of the club are:

  • No dues
  • No meetings
  • No repeaters
  • Occasional newsletters

  • Contesting
  • DX’ing
  • Phone and CW operation
  • Digital modes
  • Building and testing antennas
