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

From our President (May 5, 2021):

Hello Fellow Amateurs,

Here are some updates.

First, we will be having our May meeting in person! It will be more of a social event, but we will be face to face. The RACK van will be on display. and there will be snacks to enjoy. We will meet at Cokesbury Church on Kingston Pike. The meeting area is at the North Side of Kingston Pike campus. Call us on our repeater, 147.300 for a talkin.

  Our Hamfest is on June 19, 2021 at Kerbela Temple. More information can be found on our website,

  Our Field Day is still being planned. It is scheduled for 6/26 & 27/2021. Stay tuned as we move forward.

 We have completed another phase of our repeater system update. New 1/2 " hardline has been installed to the new antenna system. Reports are that the repeaters are heard better and further than previously. This exciting that our equipment is working very well.

 We also have a new rack for our equipment to live. It is roomier so the equipment will have more room to breath. More information to follow on more equipment to make our system better.

  Thanks for being patient, Get our our repeaters and talk!

  Keep our military, law enforcement and government personnel in your prayers.

   See you soon,

   Jim Norman, N4CFB

   President RACK
