The Stanwood Camano Amateur Radio Club (SCARC), in a Joint Venture Operation with the
Boeing Employees Amateur Radio Operators North Society
commemorated the first new Washington State Park opening in over 10 years, by
operating Special Event Station K7P ( Kilowatt Seven Park).
Event Operations were split during the three days between stations operated by both the
SCARC and BEARONS. It is anticipated that we will have a special QSL card produced for this
event. Hours of operation were: Oct 17 1900Z-2400Z, Oct 18 1600Z-2400Z,
Oct 19 1600Z-2400Z
Freq: SSB 14.265, 7.250 + or - 5 khz. QSL direct to KN7T. Please include #10 SASE for special
event card. See either the
or the SCARC web sites for additional information.
The Grand Opening of the new Cama Beach State Park, located on the southwest side of
Island, was celebrated the weekend of June 21, 2008, "The First Day of Summer". It
excitingly follows a legislative decision in 1998 to cut State expenses by closing 42
Washington State Parks. Several of our own Club members (along with other members of our
community) have spent the past several years using their skills to work on and ready the Park for its
Washington State Park Reservations are booking reservations two years in advance. For more
