Electronics

As a service to the community, we can offer our opinion on what your old electronics or ham radio equipment might be worth. If you have leftover or unused ham radio gear, we may be able to help provide advice on its value, and possibly remove equipment or sell things off, and we gratefully accept donations of surplus electronics. Contact a club volunteer to get started.

Fall HAM Class Planned

Saturday December 2 and 9, 9am-5pm, Issaquah City Hall.

Emergency Communications

Refer to the Issaquah Citizen Corp  for a list of amateur radio frequencies used for emergencies.

Next Club Meeting

Join us Wednesday November 1, 2017 for our monthly meeting.  Mihai W4MHI will do a presentation on using Raspberry Pi computers for amateur radio applications. See SquakBox for details.

Looking ahead to Wednesday December 6, we will have an ice cream social AND a white elephant gift exchange.  The gifts should be of interest to radio amateurs, and the market value should be below $25.

This is a regular meeting at the Issaquah Senior Center, 7:15pm.  We will meet at the Rogue Ales Issaquah Brewhouse across from the library for dinner at 5:45pm PM.
