Radio Club of Tacoma

The Radio Club of Tacoma is a nonprofit public service organization serving FCC-licensed amateur radio operators in Pierce County, Washington, and throughout the South Puget Sound region.

Visitors and new members are always welcome! We hope you'll take the opportunity to check in to the club's weekly two meter net, attend a club meeting, sign up for a class, visit the Clubhouse on Saturday, take a turn operating the W7DK radio station, discover the library, explore the Doc Spike W7OS antique radio museum, or join us at one of our many activities scheduled throughout the year.

Clubhouse Activities & Workshops

Wednesday, November 26 - 7:00 PM - Workshop/Activity Night at the Clubhouse

Our next 4th-Wednesday workshop session will be held at the Clubhouse, November 26 at 7:00 PM (yes, the day before Thanksgiving). This month's topic is Beginner Morse Code, Part Two, a follow-on to a presentation given a few months ago. This workshop is geared toward those who have a strong interest in learning Morse Code but minimal or no experience so far. We'll get started using training software, experimenting with various ways of sending Morse Code, and looking at internet and on-air resources that can be used to build code skills. Please bring a tablet or notebook and your favorite writing tool (we recommend a gel pen, come and see why).

The Ad Hoc Committee for 4th-Wednesday Workshops is always looking for topics and presenters (and a permanent Coordinator). If you have a skill, experience, or insight that you would like to share during a 60 to 90 minute presentation, please let us know. The Committee can assist you with preparation of handouts, PowerPoints, and similar collateral.

Contact Larry KD4VOM, Randy WB4SPB, or Mike W7MWF if you would like to make a contribution to these popular and successful events.
