Recognition Programs are described in the Standing Rules, as updated from time to time by the Board of Directors. Two of these annual awards are summarized below:


An award made annually, in the memory Doctor F. Clifford Spike W7OS, an early member of the Radio Club of Tacoma whose long service and devotion to the club was the inspiration for the award. It is made to the Club Member(s) who:

  • best represent the true spirit of Amateur Radio,
  • inspire others to promote and insure current and future success of the Radio Club of Tacoma and
  • has devoted tireless efforts in support of Club operations.

The Club maintains a Doc Spike Inspirational Award Plaque listing the names of recipients and the year they were awarded this honor.


This award may be made by the President annually to the person the President believes has contributed significantly to the mission and purposes of the Radio Club of Tacoma over the past year. Members may nominate candidates for consideration by the President.
