Dates of existence


The Amateur Radio Club, later called VE5US, was formed during the 1956-57 academic year. The Club gave members lessons on Morse code and basic theory which could be used toward obtaining government certification to broadcast on-air. The Club operated a well-equipped station atop the Engineering Building. On a weekly basis it would communicate with other universities across the country at a set time, allowing students and their families to communicate for free. Over time, the club expanded its reach to many places across the globe. The rising popularity of the Internet eventually led to the end of the club.
