Welcome

The Amateur Radio Transmitting Society is Louisville’s oldest ham radio club, founded in 1927.

ARTS is not a “Contest Club” a “Repeater Club” or a “DX Club”. We are not a special interest Club at all. We do, however, invite amateurs strongly interested in the different aspects of Ham Radio to join ARTS and promote their special interests. We welcome all amateurs from the newest technician to the most seasoned extra class. We encourage membership in ARRL, ARES, and RACES, and acknowledge the amateur radio operator’s responsibility to the public by providing emergency communications, encouraging members to improve their communication and technical skills, and by fostering international good will.

Some of our activities include providing communications for local public service events, participating in the ARRL’s annual Field Day on the 4th full weekend in June, and holding monthly meetings with informative and interesting topics.  See the Club Events page and Club Calendar to learn what events the club currently has planned.

The purpose of these nets is primarily for amateurs to get to know one another better and by providing a forum for the exchange of information. These nets are open to all amateurs; you DO NOT have to be a member to check in.
