Penn State Amateur Radio Club

K3CR Station

The Penn State Amateur Radio Club operates an amateur radio station for use by club members, Penn State University Park students, and community members. The station is located on the 4th floor of the Wagner building, with the antennas on the roof.

The station is still in the process of being moved from its previous, less spacious location. Below are a few pictures of the station during the move.

Because the antennas have not been installed yet, the handrail of the staircase was temporarily wired as an antenna to test the equipment. Users have reported hearing spanish speaking stations with a signal strength of 10 over 9.
