Robertson County Amateur Radio Club  
Serving Northern Middle Tennessee and South Central Kentucky


(This page last modified on 09/08/2020)

Welcome to our little spot on the web.  We hope that you find our web site informative and helpful.  It is a work in progress and as they say...."under construction" so please check back often for updates.

Robertson County Amateur Radio Club has been in existence for just over 9 years, founded in June of 2011 to provide an organization that amateur (ham) radio operators in and around Robertson County can gather to share ideas, mentor other hams to advance in the hobby and to assist non-hams interested in becoming an amateur radio operator. Even though the club is now 8+ years old, we are still working hard to make this a viable communications resource to the people of the surrounding area. Please bear with us while we continue to work through this process. 

While we are based in Robertson County Tennessee, just North of Nashville, we support all counties in Northern Middle Tennessee and in South Central Kentucky and invite any licensed amateur radio operator in these areas to join our group and help us to grow.

Club meetings are held on the first Thursday night of each month at NorthCrest Medical Center in Springfield. The meetings are in the board room, see the guard at the main entrance for directions to the room.  The time for the meeting is 7:00pm and everyone is welcome to attend.

We would like to thank the Robertson County Senior Center for their hospitality in providing us a meeting and testing location as the club was getting started.

Note: The location  for the next club meeting, scheduled for October 1st will NOT be held at the hospital due to
restrictions related to the current COVID-19 virus.
The October 1st meeting will be held at First Free Will Baptist Church, 811 16th Ave East in Springfield.
This may be the case for the next few months so check back here for updated information on future meetings.

Our meetings are open to all...hams, non-hams, members and non-members. Come visit with us Thursday night, October 1st at 7pm.

The program for the October meeting is still in the planning stages but will be, as always, informative to the amateur operators in attendance.

Mobile operation has come a long way since the above photo was taken

We are currently expanding our training program to offer classes for those that wish to obtain their ham radio license or for currently licensed hams that are looking to upgrade.  We have had a successful Technician class in 2017 and will schedule a General class if and when there is enough folks intersted. Watch this site for more details on that as they become available.

RCARC now has our own VE team to administer license exams and we are offering exam sessions on the second Saturday of every other month at NorthCrest Medical Center in Springfield. Test sessions are at 1pm but you might want to get there a few minutes early to get your paperwork done. The VE team is usually there around 12:30 to set up. Check the RCARC VE Team link above for upcoming dates.
