In the amateur radio community, “Elmer” is a term that we use to mean mentor. Snohomish County Hams Club has several members who are willing to volunteer their experience to help you achieve your radio dreams. The Elmer will come along side you and assist you with your projects, teach you something useful or just sit with you as you learn how to operate. Here are just some of the things an Elmer can do:
- Are you having trouble with an antenna? We have elmers who have a lot of experience building, matching, and installing antennas.
- Are you a new ham just staring out? We have elmers that can help you select equipment for your first station, learn how to operate and get comfortable on the air.
- Would you like to learn contesting? We have elmers who specialize in contests, how to make contacts and score points.
Would you like help from an Elmer? Come to one of our regular club meetings and let us know. The Elmers are here for you.
