River Radio Campout 2016
For the last 3 years our numbers have grown smaller and we have leveled out at about 30 folks attending. This year we had 36 attending the potluck. This was the year for desserts.
Around 16 overnight campers some were there camping for 4 days or more. Our Friday night Hot dog feed had about 16 attendees.
Late Friday and early Saturday the rain tried to dampen our spirits, causing many to retire early. Saturday’s early morning rain pretty much ruined our Tailgating session but later in the day a few items started showing up for sale.
The PUD had earlier in the year planted about 3 or 4 rows of greenery and Trees along the river bank. In the next few years we will have plenty of Shade, or trees to tie antennas to . These plantings moved us back from the river a few feet so we lost some space but it will be nice in the future.
About three years ago we had our first Sunday morning breakfast. This year the generators came out powering waffle irons and such. Hot coffee, Waffles, Biscuits, Sausage Gravy, scrambled eggs, monkey bread, fruit and juice’s along with many more items to choose from ,trending to be a big hit.
Come join us next year
(always the weekend before Memorial Day) A great outing for friends and family!

Lake Chelan Radio Club
After the 2015 fires/ State of Affairs
As many of you know, our club lost two working repeaters during the Firestorm in Chelan this summer.
Along with the radio and repeaters our building is gone. Power to the site is also gone and probably won’t be restored for at least a year or more. These are conservative estimations by the public utility and the county commissioners.
We have been working diligently with others and are well on our way toward obtaining amateur radio parts and pieces to restore our radio capabilities to the same level we had before our losses. Just after our fire losses, many offered their assistance. Now that we have had time to evaluate our misfortune, we are sending this update report letting those offering help know what is happening and how to help.
If you are still willing to send assistance to support our repeater group, we offer this solution.
Our club has had an annual dues process of $1 a month or $12 a year for club membership.
We are proposing a 1 year/5year/10 year membership accordingly at the rate mentioned above.
Or if you are so inclined, a general donation of any denomination would graciously be accepted.
Thanks for everyone’s correspondence and concerns. We will continue to send out memos and updates
as we progress with this project. Please send your correspondence to
