RCT MEETINGS and COVID-19

While physical meetings are either prohibited or impractical, RCT will hold virtual meetings online using the Zoom and Discord services.  Any changes to this policy will be noted here, so keep your output stage tuned-up and your filaments lit.

Saturday morning Open House at the clubhouse has resumed with suitable COVID precautions.  The Virtual Clubhouse may also be active.

Starting in October 2021, regular meetings will be held on the 2ND WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH at 7PM in the clubhouse and on Zoom.

Program materials from some past meetings are available on this website -- see the bottom of this page.


SATURDAY MORNING VIRTUAL CLUBHOUSE

From 8AM until Noonish each Saturday morning, we hold a Zoom meeting, open to all comers.  This activity is less well attended now that the clubhouse is open once again, but if you can't join us there check to see who is online.  Instructions for joining the Zoom session can be viewed HERE starting at 7:30AM.


ANYTIME, ON Discord

RCT members may gather on a Discord server for text and voice chat at any time.  The Discord meeting invitiation can be viewed HERE.


REGULAR MEMBERSHIP MEETING

The Radio Club of Tacoma holds a meeting for the general membership once each month.  Beginning in October 2021, we meet on the second Wednesday of the month starting at 7PM, both at the clubhouse and on Zoom.  The Zoom session begins earlier, to allow for pre-meeting socializing.  Instructions for joining the Zoom session can be viewed HERE starting at 6:30 PM.

There will be an entertaining program presented at each meeting.

RCT regular meetings are open to all interested folks. You don't have to be a "Ham" or a member to attend.

Regular Meeting Programs

We're always looking for interesting topics and speakers for our regular membership meetings. Meeting programs usually feature a subject relating to amateur radio that's entertaining, educational, and of general interest to club members and visitors. If you have an idea for a club meeting, please contact the club president or any club officer.

Especially significant regular membership meetings

  • During the regular membership meeting in September, the Nominating Committee presents a slate of candidates for the upcoming election in November (officer and director seats with terms ending this calendar year).  Additional nominations from the floor will be accepted at this meeting.
  • During the regular membership meeting in October, nominations from the floor will be accepted for officer and director seats with terms ending this calendar year.  This is the last opportunity to be nominated to run in the November election.  Ballots will be mailed shortly after this meeting.
  • The regular membership meeting in November is the Annual Meeting. Ballots received prior to the opening gavel will be counted, and officers and directors are elected for the upcoming calendar year.
  • Special meetings may be called at any time during the year, with advance notice to the membership, whenever Bylaws modifications are to be voted on.

FOURTH WEDNESDAY ACTIVITY NIGHT (4WAN)

The 4th Wednesday of each month is an occasion for a technical presentation or group activity, usually on a particular topic.  These begin at 7PM and run for one to two hours, depending on the program.  The topic for the next 4WAN is announced on our HOME page.  Instructions for joining the Zoom session can be viewed HERE starting at 6:30PM.


BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING

Officers and directors meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM.  Club members are welcome to attend.  These meetings are held in the clubhouse Classroom.
