Welcome Elizabeth!

Elizabeth Farr, KI7EBJ, is one of our newly minted Hams from MERT. She received preliminary training at  the Eagle Crest Fire Station yesterday and is ready to communicate.

As part of her MERT responsibility, she visits the Fire Station monthly. I have asked her to do a radio check each month when she’s there.

Please give her a warm welcome if you catch her on the Cady Repeater!

Doug Johnson – WA7PUG, a friend of Mike Sear,  who moved from Southern California to Washington has this to share.

“K6YNP and I worked on this for a few weeks … one of the things we found out is that there is a lot of talk about remote rigs but in reality, not many are really in operation …. but we now have one working.”

“Project Remote Base Aberdeen” 


Highlights include discussion of involving the local schools in the International Space Station project and possibly setting up a ham station at the public library in Friday Harbor.
