    While I'm not a member, The Cleveland Amateur Radio Club in Cleveland Tennessee owns their own building, antenna farm, and has about 7 different rigs setup for members to operate.

    I’m surprised that Dave, @W7UUU has not chimed in on this one.

    Our club, the Radio Club of Tacoma has been in existence since October 1916.

    We have a very nice clubhouse and shack, all visible at

    If you’re in the area, drop by on a Saturday during our weekly open house. Normally from 0900 to 1400 local.

    Hi Gary - just never saw the thread is all :)

    Yes we have a wonderful club station. All are invited any Saturday of the month from 10:00 to 2:00 to visit, see our shacks (we actually have THREE operating areas: the main HF Room, the W7OS Doc Spike Memorial Museum station, and our somewhat-ADA compliant HF station on the first floor, with a VHF/UHF station next to it). On the last saturday of the month, we have a mini swap meet and chili dog feed.

    ALL are invited - this is open to the public. for details

    Thanks for the "bat signal" :)

    We are in Sun City, AZ. Just under 200 members, probably half are active on a daily basis.

    Station has yet to be completed. A work in progress, we hope to be on the air by mid summer. Not sure what equipment we will have as yet. I do know we have a 55' tubular crank up tower & a
    50 ' Rohn that will hold a vertical & a couple of dipoles.

    Club station access?

    Does every member have access? What are the hours of operation? Do your clubs charge a deposit for keys/entry fobs or cards? All things we need to address yet. We are still a work in progress. Hopefully the permit for our tower will be approved by the beginning of next week & can start digging our foundation.

    ALL input is appreciated. Everyone have a great weekend.
