Other Classes, Nets and Conferences

Date Event Organization Location Contact
Continuous Rookie Roundtable Net   Snoqualmie Valley ARC Thursday evenings at 7:00pm local time.  (There is no net on the first Thursday of each month due the SnoVARC monthly meeting)

441.825 MHz + PL 103.5

The purpose of this net is to give newer hams a chance to connect with other hams on the air. By sharing experiences and knowledge we can help each other further our journey into the ham radio hobby.   Even if you have been a ham for a long time, we still invite you to join in the round-table discussions. Those that are newer to the hobby can benefit greatly from your shared experiences.

Information for Class Sponsors

Please keep your listing concise with just the dates, name of the sponsor, location, brief comments and contact information.  If possible, provide a link to your club web page with full information about the class.  This allows the club to update the listing as necessary.    Another option is to provide a link to a class flyer in PDF.


Disclaimer:  I do my best to keep up with scheduling changes on these events, but there is always the chance that one will be canceled or re-scheduled and I will not find out about it.  I suggest that you verify all dates and locations with the sponsor.  If you find any inaccuracies, please contact me at .  Thanks!
