Radio Club of Tacoma

The Radio Club of Tacoma is a nonprofit public service organization serving FCC-licensed amateur 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 Doc Spike W7OS antique radio museum, or join us at one of our many activities scheduled throughout the year.

Clubhouse Activities

Wednesday, September 27 - 7:00 PM - Fourth Wednesday Activity Night at the Clubhouse

FT-8, the latest digital communications mode from the Joe Taylor crew, was released and developed a large following over the summer.  This month, presenter Bruce WE7P will help us understand the pros, cons, whys and wherefores of FT-8, which is related to the weak-signal JT-65 and JT-9 modes but accomplishes most QSOs in 1/4 of the time.
