About us

ARASNE has been an active amateur radio club in Rhode Island since 1926. Our clubhouse was originally the only building on the street! In 1925, one of the founding members donated the property, and in 1926, ARASNE was born! We are one of the few New England clubs which have their own clubhouse and property.  ARASNE has a rich history of activity in participating in contests and events.

If you’re interested in getting into amateur radio, perhaps just more out of the hobby, your welcome to join us *any* Friday evening after 7:30pm. The ARASNE clubhouse is located at 54 Kelley Avenue, East Providence, RI. There is plenty of parking!. As the slogan was coined —

“Come and see what’s new… at W1AQ!”

President: William Litchman (KB1PGP)

    I have a Ritron Patriot FCC ID: AIERPM -150 scanner with an Astron SL-11A power supply that is in good working condition. Is there anyone in your club that might be interested in buying it?

    I’m looking for a good home for anyone that wants my Fathers old 60’s-70’s boat anchor. As I recall, he was part of your club in the 70’s as WA1VEL.
