RUTGERS AMATEUR RADIO CLUB, WA2NPP REACTIVATED
CQ CQ CQ RU ALUMNI
New Brunswick, NJ - Scott Meister (WB2REI, RU Class of ’81) and Ron Biava (WB2PKR, RU Class of ’84) announce the reactivation of the Rutgers Amateur Radio Club callsign, WA2NPP. It has been several years since the club has been active. Some time ago, due to a lack of interest amongst students, the club lost their “shack” in the Rutgers Student Center on College Avenue. Subsequently, the club callsign expired.
Only after Scott and Ron met a few years ago, did they realize their paths had crossed several times in the past including time spent at the Rutgers Club WA2NPP. When they attempted to inquire about the club with the former trustee, they did not receive any responses. As a result, when the club callsign expired, they secured it.
“We thought it important to retain the affiliation of the callsign, WA2NPP with the Rutgers ARC.”
Initially, the new club will focus on membership development and developing interest at the undergraduate level on campus. Additionally, the club will document the history of the Rutgers Amateur Radio Club.
The Rutgers Alumni ARC is open to any graduate of Rutgers University. Interested parties should contact the club via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
