We hope these pages will provide you with the information you seek to become more knowledgeable of amateur activities in the Flathead Valley and more involved with our club!
This year's ARRL Field Day will be held on the 25th and 26th of June. We've reserved the group site area of the park from Friday afternoon to Monday morning. Many club members will begin setting up there on Friday afternoon and will be bringing their RVs and staying there through the event. There's ample room for many RVs as well as tent campers; so, I invite club members to bring their RV or tent and join us. Everyone, including the general public, is welcome to visit during the event.
More information about Field Day can be found here:

WinLink is a way to send and receive email on your ham radio WITHOUT the internet, lots of fun, any questions please ask me or Rick on how to get set up.
I have set up an email group for Winlink users. Please publish this in your club newsletter or email group.
You are invited to join the Pacific Northwest Winlink User Group. This is an email group for Winlink users in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska and British Columbia. The purpose of this group is to share information and facilitate Winlink development.
To join the PNWWUG group, please send your name, callsign, location and email address to Lynn Burlingame, N7CFO, at email@example.com. You can only post messages from an address that is subscribed to the group, so if you use an ARRL alias to subscribe, you will only be able to receive messages if your email client can be configured to send “from” the ARRL alias.
Every Saturday morning at 9am at Sykes Restaurant located at 202 2nd Ave. West, Kalispell.
This is an informal get-together for an "eyeball QSO".
EVERYONE is invited, especially NEW hams! This is an excellent forum for new hams to be able to sit down with seasoned hams and absorb the hobby! Come on down and enjoy some GREAT Amateur Radio talk over coffee, ham and eggs!
