MIT Radio Society

Help Support the MIT Radio Society

111 years after its founding, the Radio Society is flourishing. Student interest in RF engineering, telecommunications, and radio science is growing, and with that growth the club’s membership has swelled.

Thanks to your support, we can safely say that that growth will continue, and MIT’s tallest academic building will remain a home for amateur radio for years to come.

We are now setting our sights on a new goal. The fate of the iconic radomes on the Green Building roof remains in question. The large radome in particular is an invaluable resource for the club and has proved its worth for academics in the face of covid-19. MIT is now evaluating a plan for its renewal, but it will likely be upon us to make it happen.

Read more about how you can help us continue to provide valuable experiential learning opportunities to MIT students, and please consider lending your support in building a new and better station at MIT!

About W1MX

Formerly 1XM, the MIT Radio Society (W1MX) is America’s oldest college amateur station.

The MIT Radio Society is a student run organization intended for MIT students, faculty, and staff. New student members are always welcome.

We hold business meetings at 7:30pm ET on the first Tuesday of every month, as well as weekly social meetings on Fridays at 7:00pm ET. Due to Covid-19, all club meetings are being held virtually. Please contact the club officers for information on how to join!
