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, August 24 - 7:00 PM - Fourth Wednesday Activity Night at the Clubhouse

For this month's activity, Club members are invited to "get on the air" with the Club's fine radio equipment. The Lou Room (downstairs) station, now built around a Yaesu FT-950, is fully configured with a computer interface and usable for phone, digital and CW operation. The HF Room (upstairs) has two operating positions:  the main desk features the IC-756 Pro III (all modes) and the secondary desk is set up with an IC-718 for phone operation. Any rig can be patched to any of the Club's yagi or inverted vee antennas.

Experienced ops will be present to provide any needed guidance in the use of the equipment. Here's a chance to become familiar with the rigs we'll use during our upcoming Salmon Run (Washington State QSO Party) effort in mid-September. See you there!

The Ad Hoc Committee for 4th-Wednesday Activity Night is always looking for topics and presenters (and a permanent Coordinator). If you have a skill, experience, or insight that you would like to share during a 60 to 90 minute presentation, please let us know. The Committee can assist you with preparation of handouts, PowerPoints, and similar collateral. Contact Randy WB4SPB or Mike W7MWF if you would like to make a contribution to these popular and successful events.
