On Friday, September 25, the ARRL Board of Directors adopted guidelines on the appropriate use of Amateur Radio on behalf of commercial, non-profit and government entities, as well as recommendations for additional steps to be taken by the ARRL to educate radio amateurs and others on how to prepare and train for public service and emergency communications while complying with the current FCC Rules.
New location! Beginning in January 2019, the Mason County Amateur Radio Club meets at the Mason County Department of Emergency Management (DEM) at 100 W Public Works Drive, Shelton, WA 98584. SEE THE MAP BELOW!
We still have our Chat Nets every Sunday & Wednesday evenings @ 1930 (7:30 PM) on 146.72 (- 103.5) and our 10-meter net on Tuesdays @ 1930 (still 7:30 PM) on 28.450 (USB).
NMARESC (The North Club) has a net on their new repeater every Monday at 1930 on 145.170 MHz with a negative .600 MHz offset (144.57 MHz) and a tone of 103.5.
You do not have to be a member of the club to join in! New folks are always welcome!
