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 evening @ 1930 hours (7:30 PM) on 146.72 MHz (- 103.5) and our 10-meter net on Tuesdays @ 1930 hours (7:30 PM) on 28.450 MHz (USB).

You do not have to be a member of the club to join in! New folks are always welcome!
