Joel has been so kind to provide this annotated list of area repeaters (as of 12/07/2022).  It tends to provide much more current and detailed information than The Repeater Book.

Ham Cram 2024 is now history.  On the Weekend of 3/23-24 a review/testing session at the American Legion site here in Wenatchee resulted in 6 more Techs and a General added to our Ham Radio Operator list.

A very special Silent Key benefactor must be sadly acknowledged.   
Joe Stevens WN7N
of Leavenworth passed away March 21st, 2024

It was Joe Stevens who, upon specific directions that it be kept confidential, is the generous man who donated our new Club trailer to ACARC a while ago. 

Joe was a past Air Force Veteran missile Electronics Technician, and then, up to his passing, was an ardent Ham Radio hobbyist.

The Club will be installing a new plaque on the trailer, naming him as the donor and honoring his generosity.

Thanks to Jim N7JA who forwarded the
SDR information below from the ChelanARC.
It is offered to all of us to investigate and maybe get involved with.  Looks like interesting stuff.

Donna N7IIS and Duane KI7RJT, famously from the very active business loop of beautiful downtown Dryden heading into our monthly membership meeting. 


We are all SO GRATEFUL that they volunteered to round up our "refreshments" for the Saturday get-togethers thus relieving our busy Secretary Doug K7DEG  from this added responsibility.

THANKS again, Donna and Duane.

One of the most regular and well-attended events that ACARC sponsors is our Tuesday night Net Check-ins.  Just to give you an idea of the activity this year, see the spreadsheet below.  A greater number of people are involved here than in our Club Meetings - or just about anything else we do. 
Weekly updates are especially important during these times of change and instantaneous re-arrangement. 
You are welcome to join in our net formally, just go to the NET CHECK IN tab to the left, or perhaps just feel free to listen in to the announcements on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm - if nothing else just so you can keep up to speed on events happening - or not happening - or dates changing.
GUESTS are ALWAYS welcome.
