RCT Clubhouse

The Radio Club of Tacoma is a nonprofit public service organization serving FCC-licensed amateur ("ham") 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 W7OS Antique Radio Museum, or join us at one of our many activities scheduled throughout the year.
