Welcome To The Richardson Wireless Klub

We serve the Richardson TX community by providing self-supporting special event and emergency communication networks. The RWK also promotes amateur radio to the public in Richardson and the surrounding area as a useful, life-long hobby.

Our club is comprised of over 300 individual amateur radio operators (hams) in Richardson and the surrounding communities, with a wide range of interests and skills. We strive to increase the number and quality of fellowship and amateur radio learning opportunities. Our membership includes hams ranging from teenagers to radio pioneers in their 80s and beyond! The Richardson Wireless Klub has been an ARRL affiliated club since 1952.

The RWK provides many opportunities to assist members to maximize their knowledge and enjoyment of amateur radio through fun, fellowship and unique learning experiences. The Richardson Wireless Klub is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.


Please note: all in-person club gatherings have been moved to online events for the time being. Please see the calendar for updates as they become available. We hope to see you when things even out.
