The Annual SCARC Swap meet is now over. Many reports of happy vendors and treasure seekers!
Great turn-out. Parking lot overflowing! Raffle prizes were popular as well.
Next up: Field Day! Set-up will be at Arrowhead Ranch on Camano Island on June 24th.
Volunteers needed for set-up on Friday, operating Saturday and take-down Sunday.
More details soon.
Operating: LOTS of FT8 activity on all the HF bands. 20 meters has been wide open, even late at night!
6 meter activity is also growing.
Coming soon: The annual US Islands QSO Party is Aug 26th. Be sure to mark you calendars. The Club placed
FIRST last year - thanks to the efforts of many club members out roving and activating islands. Plan now
to participate. Planning to do this year's contest a bit differently with each rover team activating
only one or two islanda giving them a more relaxed pace and hopefully a chance to make more contacts.
