SCARC club members monitor 147.57 MHz and the local repeater on 147.36 MHz. Any ham is welcome to join in the general conversation.
A directed "net" meeting is held every Monday night beginning about 20:10 (following the ARES net which meets at 20:00 (8:00 PM) on 147.57 simplex). The club operates a repeater located at the north end of Camano Island at an elevation of approximately 500 feet. It operates on frequency of 147.36 MHz +600 offset with a CTCSS tone of 127.3 Hz. The call sign is: W7PIG.
Our club members have a wide variety of interests including public service, disaster preparedness, working "DX" or distant stations, electronic construction and experimentation, low power operation (aka QRP), amateur satellite communications, etc.
