Radio Club of Tacoma

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.

September 21-22 - Salmon Run is around the corner.  This contest is sponsored by the Western Washington DX Club, rules are here.  RCT makes a big effort for this event and runs a concurrent fundraiser:  pledge some amount for each Washington county we work, up to 39; maybe give us a bonus for a "clean sweep".  Watch for pledge forms in the mail in August.  Non-members are welcome to pledge too!
