This page contains information specific to our club. If you're a new ham, make sure you read this page first and then continue here.
The first place to start is definitely our Club Info page. There you'll find information about our repeaters, coffee meetings, and executive should you have any questions.
Our regular Nets are a good place to chat with other members and test your equipment and your range. We recommend you program our repeater frequencies with a Tone Squelch since W7AVM on Whidbey Island in Washington State uses the same frequency as VE7RXZ. You should also be able to use the two simplex frequencies we use on the evening net (146.565 MHz and 446.100 MHz) using the VFO because if they are in use, we'll move around a bit to find a clear frequency.
Our calendar of events (on the right hand side of the page) contains all of the club events as well as some other events that might be of interest to our members. Clicking on an event (in green) will expend it and show more details.
If you'd like to add an item to our calendar, just email Patrick and he'll do it for you.
Once you've paid your dues, we'll add your information to the (password protected) Member Contact Info page, and we will email you your user ID to log into the site. You can change your password here. This will allow you to access the Members' section, which contains contact information, meeting minutes, and other links.
You'll also be able to help edit and grow the site if you feel comfortable doing so.
We have a shared folder on Sync.com that allows members to access shared files.
Once you have access to the Club's shared drive, keep this very important thing in mind:
Any edit or deletion you make will propagate to everyone's copy. Even moving a file out of the shared folder into a local folder will delete it from everyone else's shared folder.
Finally, have a look at the ever expending How-To section and feel free to add any new topic that is mildly ham related. We have a lot of collective knowledge and the more we share it, the better it is for everyone.
Since this can potentially be a big section, all new pages in this section should be within the How-To namespace. To do this, simply add
/howto/ before the new page name. For example, the link to this page is
We recommend everyone uses the same light grey colour to match our logo. The style is your preference. For example, here is a hoodie that Patrick bought:
