RWK Equipment Lending Library

The RWK has a selection of equipment that is available for Klub Members to use on a temporary basis. Radio in for service? You can borrow a radio from the Klub for a couple of weeks while yours is away. Working on an antenna? The Klub has an antenna analyzer that you can borrow to tune it properly.

We mainly use this equipment for Field Day and other portable activities, but it’s available to loan to members if not needed by the Klub. Please see the information on the right on how to borrow equipment from this list.
