New to HAM radio? Do you have questions around what would be a good first radio? If so, we have a great new way to get some advice. Go to our Radio Selection Survey page and take our survey. The results will be posted to a group of the club’s HAMs who has lots of experience to help you. Here is a link.
The primary mission of the Lake Washington Ham Club is to offer amateur radio instructional classes to children and their parents and to prepare these people to participate in emergency service communications groups. The Club’s secondary mission is to increase awareness of amateur radio and to promote the continued use and growth of this important community resource.
In the event of an emergency the repeaters are reserved for the Amateur Radio Emergency Services
