The Radio Amateur Club of Knoxville Welcomes You!

The Radio Amateur Club of Knoxville (RACK) was founded in 1954 as a way 
of promoting the interest of amateur radio operators in the Knoxville Tennessee area.

Our primary means of funding is through the proceeds from our annual
 event, The Knoxville HamFest and Electronics Exhibition,  held the third Saturday - June 19, 2021. 

We use our HamFest income for new ham education, support of our state-of-the-art repeater 
systems and mobile emergency communications van, 
public service activities, scouting support, and scholarships for hams.

Membership dues are used to cover our meeting and operating expenses, 
member communications, picnics, fox hunts, and Field Day.

We are registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. 
Donations of equipment or money are tax deductible when we 
provide letters of acknowledgement for such donations.

If you would like to make a donation to RACK,click on the PayPal® link shown below.
It's safe, secure and tax deductible!

From our President (July 10, 2020):

Hello Fellow Amateurs,
I sincerely hope everyone is staying safe in this crazy environment we live in. It is a great time to check in to nets or DXing instead of getting out in public. Our regular July meeting has changed. It will held as a Zoom call. For those that haven't participated in this type of meeting, it is very simple. Go to, enter the meeting number and then the password and join the meeting. Be sure to activate your audio and video. After you are in the meeting, please silence your microphone(lower left corner) so ambient sounds will not be heard by everyone. Just remember to activate when you choose to say something to the group.
The meeting number is 619 495 5721.
Password is 73 

Please join us for this first time event.
Don't let "I've never done this before" keep you from participating. It will start at 7pm on July16,2020. You won't be able to log in till 6:50 pm. I hope to see you next Thursday. Keep our military, law enforcement and government leaders in your prayers.

Jim Norman, N4CFB President, RACK
