Raffle Starts Up Again

Some of you might remember we use to hold a monthly raffle at the meetings.  We sell tickets for a dollar and then the first winner gets half of the kitty or takes a raffle item.  The club keeps the other half of the kitty.  What really makes this fun is members bring in raffle items to give away. The raffle items could be radio related, emergency related or what ever would be useful or fun.  (No Junk Please).

See you on Thursday!

Local ham shops?

Mark Kenworthy
 

Hi everyone – Are there any ham radio retailers in the area that anyone would recommend?  I have a friend coming in from (way) out of town to pick up a vehicle he is buying, and he wants to get some ham radio gear for it before he starts the long trek home.

 

Thanks,

 

Mark

I’d be very interested in this too.  The only one I’m aware of is HRO in Portland Oregon.

The only one I know of is ABC Communications in Seattle and I do no think he has much of a selection in his store.

Re: Local ham shops?

It was a sad day when the long time ham radio store in Georgetown closed. In my opinion we were left blowing in the wind that day. My single experience dealing with the only remaining retailer, when I recently called them about a vhf/uhf antenna, was not very favorable. I found them to be impatient with my questions and it came through clearly enough that I determined never to do business with them ever! Maybe we should should all start a letter writing campaign to try to lure one of the major retailers back to the Seattle market.

I get all my equipment from www.AESham.com in Las Vegas and www.universal-electronics.com. I got my antennas installed in my truck through Day Wireless in Everett.

Re: KE7GFZ X Snoqualmie Valley Amateur Radio Club (SnoVARC) Re: Local ham shops?

Rowland Brasch <rb@...>
 

ABC Communications is run by an older gruff man.  Once you get past the amour he is really nice and very knowledgeable. He deals with mostly commercial communication radios (Business Band) like those used at the different cities. For those of you that are from this area when you were young take note that he was the main camera operator on the JP Patches show.  If you get him talking about that the stories he has to tell are very interesting and he loves to talk about them.  He also rebuilds antique radios and has quite a collection.

 

Unfortunately the down side of the internet is that companies feel they don’t have to have brick and mortar stores in every city now when you can go online and purchase the product.  As much as I like doing it that way I also like to see, touch and feel some products before purchasing.  Especially big ticket items.  I really liked Amateur Radio Supply when it was in George Town.  Their big mistake was they moved from their older store front to a much larger better exposed store right off of the Michigan exit of the freeway.  I think the overhead ate them up and they were closed in about two years.

Repeater Owners/Operators

k7wjc <K7WJC@...>
 

The DNR has issued NEW guidelines for Amateur Repeater Site Leases.
The following memo was sent to me on Friday, after my request to DNR
for specific guidelines:

September 30 2009



To: All DNR Communications Site Managers

From: Mark Savage

Subject: Amateur Radio Leases, Guidelines and Information.

Guidelines:


1. Amateur Leases in DNR Facilities will be written for no more
than five (5) years. This includes any new lease applications and new
leases as a result of an expiring lease.

2. Any Amateur lease due to expire between September 30 2009 and
July 1 2010 can be extended for a period no longer than five (5)years.

3. Any lease with a termination date after July 1, 2010 will not
be renewed or extended.(with the understanding the facilities would no
longer be in possession of DNR, and the lease would already have been
assigned to the new owner)

The issue of the amateur radio operations leasing in DNR facilities
under the provisions of RCW 79.13.510 has been under discussion as we
prepare to sell DNR Wireless Facilities. Our goal is to place a
condition, in the sale agreement that the purchaser work with DNR to
develop a reporting system and payment system that will allow the
current program to continue. DNR has not developed the reporting and
system to work within the provisions of RCW 79.13.510, but there are no
reasons the program should not or could not continue. We are in the
first stages of this sale process and the intent is to keep any
disruption to the (all) lessees to a minimum.

The decision to move out of the ownership/management of wireless
facilities is based on many issues, principally the financial impact
$250,000 per year in subsidized costs above management income (30%) to
DNR and (70%) to the Trusts. DNR is not moving away from commercial
communications site management but is making a deliberate business move
to develop the emerging land leasing opportunities as the build out of
broadband and cellular sites in rural areas of the state continue.
