2017 County Activity

Western Wash DX Club - Thu, 08/03/2017 - 1:56pm
2017 Washington State Salmon Run Activate a County

If you’re going to activate a county in the 2017 Salmon Run, please let a WWDXC officer know, or email salmonrun (at-sign) wwdxc (dot) org the information, and we’ll add it to the list! The “Activate a County List” is a way to inform hams around the world participating in the Salmon Run who to look for in the different Washington counties – and to let those of us who go out with mobile stations know which counties may not be covered. There is no requirement to operate specific bands or modes, and there is no exclusive “reservation.”

Location: Building 35/4561

Map:  https://www.bing.com/search?q=microsoft+building+35

Agenda

Dayton Hamvention

Scott, N7SS, will share with us his review of the new venue for the Dayton Hamvention and the new toys!

Ham Help

If you don’t know everything about amateur radio yet, that’s OK. As a club, we have a broad spectrum of interests and experiences. Please feel free to ask questions at this part of the meeting.

Access

146.58 MHz FM simplex will be monitored for anyone who needs help finding the site or for access to the building. (Monitoring is done with handhelds, so range is limited.) If you’re running late and are locked out, please call us on the radio. We’ll send someone to let you in.

SECURITY NOTE: Anyone who does not have their own Microsoft badge for unescorted access to Microsoft buildings MUST be escorted into Building 35 and conference room 4561 by a badged MicroHAMS member. Do NOT under any circumstances attempt to “tag” onto or “tailgate” Microsoft employees entering the building. Please congregate about five minutes before the meeting outside the lobby entrance on the south side of the building. If you have a Microsoft badge, please check outside the front entrance for other club members who need to be escorted.

MicroHAMS meetings are open to club members, those interested in joining the club (see club membership policy at http://www.microhams.com), and guests of club members. Others may also attend a club meeting by sending email to the club at least seven days prior to the meeting. Space for guests is limited.

73,

Tim Myers, KK7TM

MicroHAMS Secretary
