Welcome

WA7LAW.ORG is a site to support the activities of the Snohomish County Hams Club.  We welcome all amateur radio operators as well as those who may be interested in the hobby.  Membership in the Snohomish County Hams Club is open to all.  Our monthly Club meeting is open to all who are interested in Amateur Radio. While we welcome everyone, please understand that our focus is on our local community.  We leave the global stuff to others.

New UHF and APRS Antennas Installed

Antenna Tower on the roof of Bakerview Apartments

On August 2, 2018 a team of club members met on the roof of the Bakerview apartments to install the newly acquired UHF and APRS antennas. In the picture at left, the new UHF antenna is mounted on the left end of the horizontal frame. The VHF antenna is on the top of the tower. The new VHF APRS antenna is mounted on the right end of the horizontal frame. The dish on the right side of the horizontal frame is used for HAMWAN.

Thank Rob (N3RO), Jim (W7ETE), Roger (KF7WVT), Dennis (W7DEB), Henry (KH6VM) and Randy (AJ7B) for working on this installation.

Jamboree-On-The-Air 2018

Jamboree-On-The-Air (JOTA) is the largest scouting event in the world and takes place the 3rd weekend in October every year. It is a radio operating event that seeks to provide scouts with an opportunity to talk to other scouts using amateur radio, and is an opportunity to show scouts what amateur radio is all about.

There will be event locations at Fire Mountain Scout Reservation east of Big Lake, in Skagit County; as well as at Camp Freeman, east of Lake Roesiger, in Snohomish County.

Most of the activity will occur on Saturday October 20th.

Anyone interested in supporting (or visiting) this operating event should contact Tom Hutchinson, N7PKK, at 425-252-0890 or n7pkk@arrl.net for further information.

Scout Merit Badge Counseling

Do you interest in helping a Scout obtain a Radio merit badge. If you do, you will have to complete a merit badge counseling training program. It has recently been updated so you don’t have to attend a class. You can do the training online. To learn more, click here. Tom Hutchinson (N7PKK) can also answer your questions about this program. See his contact information in the Club Roster on the Members Only page.
