Our July 13th Club meeting will be a “SwapFest” held at Redmond Presbyterian Church. We are moving because of the anticipated Redmond Derby Day madness around City Hall. Feel free to use the Yahoo group to send around lists of items for sale and swap prior to the meeting. The event is limited to member-to-member private transactions — no commercial selling.

Redmond Presbyterian Church (10020 166th Avenue NE, Redmond, WA 98052) is located in the “Education Hill” area of Redmond, Washington. It is situated at the corner of 166th Ave NE and NE 100th St, just across the street from the Redmond Middle School tennis courts.

Note: If you wish to purchase an item prior to the SwapFest, email the seller directly to make arrangements.

The items listed below are based on information from the sellers. It is designed to assist the buyer’s planning. The actual SwapFest may have different items at the event. There is no guarantee that the actual item will appear at the SwapFest, or at the indicated price. For example, the seller might have could have listed it by mistake, or the item could be sold prior to the event, or the seller might change their mind and decide to not sell it (or sell it for a different price). In addition, a seller might decide at the last minute to add items at the event which are not listed below.

The SwapFest is not a commercial event. It is designed as a fun way to have the club members share our resources.

Updated 10-Jun-2018 — All of the repeaters at Rose Hill and Lincoln Square are fully operational.

The ARRL has launched a new podcast geared towards new ham radio amateurs. Click here for more information.

Two interesting awards are available from the ARRL. Check them out!

First, for new hams, the ARRL has a “First Contact Award.” The award is a very nice certificate suitable for framing that commemorates your first “on-the-air” contact. This would be a wonderful surprise to send a ham when you are THEIR first contact. For more information, check out the First Contact Award page at http://www.arrl.org/first-contact

The second award is the ARRL “Elmer Award.” An Elmer is someone who provides personal guidance and assistance to would-be or new hams. While technology constantly evolves, the human interaction between hams will not be replaced and will always remain one of the hobby’s strongest traditions. As licensed hams we are all ambassadors of Amateur Radio and we should always be looking at ways in which we can welcome newly licensed hams and project a positive image that will attract others to ham radio. The Elmer Award is a way that you can thank your own Elmer for their time, expertise, and encouragement. Check out the Elmer award page at http://www.arrl.org/elmer-award to present the Elmer Award certificate to someone who has helped you in Amateur Radio.

9-Dec-2017 — Interested in trying something new? But still old? (That sounds interesting, huh!) At our “Holiday Field Day” party, Rick Beatty, W7RNB47@gmail.com announced that his 10 meter repeater continues to be available in Edmonds. Given the uneven and unpredictable propagation in the current sunspot cycle, he is interested in feedback of successful contacts with it. The repeater is at 29.68 MHz (-100 KHz offset) with a PL tone of 110.9. The repeater is available for general use and is open to all. However, you might notice that its receive frequency is outside of the Technician phone portion of the 10M band, so you will need a General license or higher to transmit to it.

Interested in CW? Take a look at this document. Very cool stuff! http://www.zerobeat.net/downloads/tasrt-english.zip
