Pacific Northwest Hamfairs and Swapmeets

Note: Due to Covid-19 restrictions, very few amateur radio related events are being scheduled at this time. This will likely change as vaccination proceeds, and it is again deemed safe for such events. The referenced website below is the best maintained compilation of event status.

This is by far the most comprehensive list of amateur radio related events in the pacific northwest. Much thanks to N7CFO .....

New Morning Net on WF7S 146.64 7:30AM

Everyone is feeling a little isolated these days and for good reason but you don’t have to be isolated. You can be social, make friends and still be safe at the same time. There is a new 2 meter social net in town.
If you’re a NEW HAM or an Old HAM you are invited to participate in a new morning social net on the 146.64 repeater W7AZ. The purpose of this net is to help new hams get involved and give old hams a way to stay involved in the exciting world of amateur radio. The net is every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday mornings at 7:30 AM. This is a social net open to anyone with a valid FCC amateur radio license. The conversation will be light and casual. There will be an opportunity to ask questions about ham radio operations. The 146.64 repeater uses a standard NEGATIVE offset and a TONE of 100 Htz. Come join the fun!

You do not need to be a member of the Tri-City Amateur Radio Club to participate. New Hams are encouraged to participate. - Richard Bogert https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2999824720083254&set=gm.29080593...
