Welcome to the New Plymouth Amateur Radio Club, Branch 27 of NZART – (New Zealand Association of Radio Transmitters).  We are a friendly bunch of people who have at least one thing in common – a love of radio.  Everything from communicating locally on VHF or UHF frequencies, or to the world on HF is covered.  Long talks with one person or competitions for the most contacts. Whether you prefer to use a microphone, computer, or the good old dots and dashes on the morse key, we do it all.
Our meetings start off with an interesting talk, an activity, or even something to build and take home.  Visitors welcome.
New members are always welcome, and we can arrange training and examinations to get you on the air.


Our meeting venue is Taranaki Emergency Management Office (TEMO), 45 Robe Street, New Plymouth.

The ZL Awards Net.

This 80m net is held every night at 9:00pm on 3.677 MHz.  Often the net controller takes no check-ins.  They have been big supporters of our Taranaki Award, so how about supporting them back.  If you are able to get on, go for it.
