Where Radio is a Contact Sport

Join TCG

How to join the fun with the Tennessee Contest Group

Many ham radio operators world-wide have discovered the thrill of contest-style operating — there’s nothing quite like it! The rewards of individual and team competition offer unique challenges unavailable elsewhere. Like many hams, we find that contributing to a team effort brings a lot of fun and satisfaction to the game. We ask you to consider joining your fellow contest operators in the TCG.

To qualify as an Associate TCG member, simply operate at least one contest per calendar year and submit your logs with credit to the TCG. We’ll show you how to do this. Of course most TCG members operate several contests per year, but it only takes one to qualify for membership.

If you would like to become a Full TCG member, an annual $25 dues is also collected. Full members enjoy voting rights and the ability to run for TCG office. Dues may be paid via PayPal, or by sending a check to the TCG Treasurer. Both Associate and Full members have full TCG mailing list privileges.

The TCG has a fairly active e-mail reflector. The reflector is where we share tips, report scores, tell stories, and discuss all of the fun, challenge and drama of radio sporting. It is also where we ask questions and share answers. The TCG membership represents a vast knowledge base, with people highly skilled in a number of disciplines. Join the TCG today and learn from some of the best!
