The 22nd Annual Summer Gathering at Valley Camp details below.
Flash! Passed on from a member of the Lake Washington Ham Club:
“TAPR recently received a generous donation from the Amateur Radio Digital Communications organization that is targeted to fund student attendance at the ARRL/TAPR Digital Communication Conference (DCC) (https://tapr.org/dcc), September 20-22 near Detroit.
“The grant allows us to provide financial support (travel, lodging, conference attendance, meals) for a few students, whether or not presently licensed, who would benefit from attendance and who would help represent a broader demographic than the current ham radio community (e.g., young people, people of color, women, etc.).
“If you would like to submit the name of a deserving student along with brief information about why you feel he/she would be a good selection, we would be happy to consider him/her. We would like to receive nominations by September 1 if possible, though we will be as flexible as possible in the timing. Please send nominations to taproffice at tapr.org.“
Minutes for the June 8 Board Meeting have been posted on the Meeting Minutes page.

The 1st Annual DMR Gathering is being planned for Valley Camp (in North Bend, WA) the weekend of May 18/19, 2019. This will bring together DMR repeater operators and users to share experience and learning about this technology.
This is being run in a similar fashion to the APRS Summer Gathering that has been held in the same location for many years. More information is available at the links below and the is a link to the Signup Genius if you are interested in attending.

Through an oversight, we missed posting President Doug’s presentation at the Annual Meeting. Here it is: 2019 President’s Report. If you tried to view it before and were not able to open it, please try again.
Here is the group photo taken at the Mike & Key Swap Meet. Soon, I plan to create a photo album page to collect photos of all our events.
