Welcome to Kapiti Branch 69

Who are we?

We are officially known as Kapiti Amateur Radio Society Inc, and we are an Amateur/Ham Radio club based right here on the Kapiti Coast.

Our callsign is ZL2KB, and we are Branch 69 of the New Zealand Associations for Radio Transmitters (NZART).

We have members of all ages and encourage anyone who is interested in Radio Communications, Computers or Electronics to come along and see what we are involved in.
 You can find and contact us here.

What we do?

Amateur Radio is a great hobby to get into. It allows licensed operators to communicate with others locally and word wide using Radio Communications and to learn technical skills relating things such as Computers, Electronics and Engineering.

Unlike Mobile Phone and Internet, Radio is an “always on” technology and can be used in tiames of emergency as you generally don’t need mains power to operate.


As an example, our club is involved in a number of emergency exercises and activities in the local community, and we are also ready to assist with any LandSAR (search and rescue) call outs that are coordinated from the Kapiti area due to our great radio coverage.
