Welcome to our little spot on the web for 2021.  This year we will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary as a club. We hope that you find our web site informative and helpful. 

Robertson County Amateur Radio Club was founded in June of 2011 by a small group of dedicated amateurs 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.

restrictions related to the current COVID-19 virus.

This may be the case for the next few months so check back here for updated information on future meetings.

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 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.
