POTAlogoFrom time to time, the Radio Club of Tacoma operates W7DK for the popular Parks On The Air program. Club members set up a mini-Field-Day-like deployment at a national or state park for a fun day with club members enoying our favorite hobby! 

Club members can participate in club-sponsored POTA activities in two ways:

  1. Operate on the air as an "activator" at the park
  2. Contact W7DK as a "hunter" on the day of the event

Club members are encouraged to come out to any scheduled activation to share knowledge or learn about portable setups and operations, different modes of operation (CW, Phone, Digital), how to manage/work pileups, and even operate HF bands with a control operator in a relaxed environment.

Any club member can organize a POTA activation for the club. Contact the coordinator for guidance, and to assure there are no conflicts with other W7DK operations.

To organize and schedule a POTA activation contact the club POTA coordinator:
