HA5KFU is an amateur radio club founded in 1954 by electric engineering students. Our radio station is located on the nineteenth floor of Schönherz Student Hostel in Budapest, Hungary. We are part of Simonyi Károly College for Advanced Studies.
Most of our club members are students of Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, both electric and computer engineering students. Apart from amateur radio service, we are also working on telecommunication-related hobby projects, which involve designing analog circuits (amplifiers and filters), building antennas, programming microcontrollers, and creating amateur transceivers using SDR and FPGA technologies.
We are constantly developing our radio station, and we are holding an amateur radio course each semester for the students interested.
A few examples of our current hobby projects: building a cross-Yagi antenna and programming an antenna rotator for satellite reception, shortwawe FPGA receiver, experimental mobile repeater station.

We sometimes use a RF power amplifier in addition, we will soon provide more info about it, along with the rest of our gear.
