W4DFU Club Equipment

Equipment Check-out

Alumni and friends have created an equipment loan pool so members may be able to check-out amateur radio equipment for trial and learning experience.  Equipment is also often checked-out for testing purposes. Links to operating manuals are included. If you would like to check out gear listed as available contact faculty advisor Dr. Jay Garlitz, jgarlitz@ufl.edu.  Permission is required and the equipment must be returned when requested.  Books are available for loan as well.
