Welcome to UBC ARS
Welcome to the University of British Columbia's Amateur Radio Society Homepage.

The UBC Amateur Radio Society is a non-profit, student organization governed by UBC's Alma Mater Society. Our mission is to divulge Amateur Radio as a hobby to students, faculty, staff and our community.

We are home to the Internet Radio Linking Project (IRLP). Pioneered by our club member Dave Cameron (VE7LTD), it is a project to link repeaters around the world through the use of internet. Currently there are over 1000 nodes and the number is increasing rapidly. For more information, please check our projects page.

If you have any questions or comments about our website, or if you're an old member - we'd like to hear from you! Please send us an email at ve7ubc@ece.ubc.ca.
