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 20, 2020. 

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,

It's safe, secure and tax deductible!
