Polyteknisk Radiogruppe (The Polytechnic Radio Group, PRG) was founded in the early 1940’s as a meeting place for radio amateurs. With time, the focus gradually expanded to include home made audio equipment (amplifiers and speakers) – quite popular during the 80’s – as well as general electronics and computer related tasks. These days most members play around with analog and digital electronics, ranging from microcontrollers (Arduino or pure AVR/PIC) to programmable logic such as FPGAs. We also have a group with an interest in computer archeology and historical computers – of which we have a few on display.
We still have radio active members and an antenna on the roof of building 101.
We have just under 100 members coming and going at all days of the week. We mainly cater to students at DTU or those that have already graduated, but everyone is welcome to join. We meet weekly on tuesdays, so if you’re curious and want to see what’s going on, stop by tuesday evening.
