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 or attend a club meeting.

When life gets back to normal, we hope you'll also 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.

In compliance with directives from the Governor of the State of Washington and local authorities, all RCT physical meetings and clubhouse activities are curtailed until further notice.

See the Club Meetings page for information about our virtual gatherings on Zoom.

And/or grab a coffee and your preferred breakfast pastry, and join the Donut Eaters Net and Roundtable at 10AM Saturday on the RCT Central Tacoma repeater, 147.28 (tone 103.5).

This month:  The Fun of Operating QRP.  We'll exploit Zoom to hear from our presenter, Steve Hudson AA4BW, an avid QRP operator and builder, who will join us from his home near Atlanta, GA.  The program will take a brief look at the technical side of things but will mostly focus on how much fun QRP can be when operating from home, from the wilderness, and even from exotic locations in the western Pacific.
