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.

100th Anniversary Celebration

The Radio Club of Tacoma celebrated the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Club on October 16, 2016. Our birthday party was a very successful event, and you can read more about it here.

RTC was formed in 1916 and affiliated with the ARRL in 1920.

To celebrate, the Club conducted a special operating event using the W7DK/100 callsign during the month of October.  Our 400+ centennial QSOs are uploaded to LoTW.  QSL cards will be going out soon.
