About Us:
Ed Blalock, who became a Silent Key on Wednesday Feb. 11, 2004 was a very active area Ham who balanced many aspects of the hobby with his personal obligations in a great way! He started a monthly Breakfast at Geronimo's Restaurant in Springdale, WA and it is out of that breakfast that this club came in to being. (Hence our club call sign being his old call sign, in his memory)

To honor Ed and keep that balanced passion alive, our club was founded on the idea of Hams having fun, helping one another, teaching others (both Hams and non-Hams alike) and being there to help the community in times of need.

We currently meet once a month for the breakfast at the Chewelah Casino in Chewelah, WA at 9am. After the breakfast we go on to our Club Meeting in Valley, WA. We meet at 11am in the Valley Fire Training Hall in Valley, WA. [click the links above for maps] Both meetings are on the 1st Saturday of every month.

We have UFH Repeater [443.725 , tx up 5MHz on 448.725, pl tone of 100hz] located in Chewelah. We also, like many clubs, participate in ARRL Field Day event every year. We're also an 'ARRL Affiliated Club'. We have official 'Non-Profit' Status in the State of Washington, and eventually we hope to become a 501 [c] 3.

Right now our website is small but it will be continually growing so check back often! If you have ideas or suggestions for the site, or it you wish to be added to our email list, just click the 'Email the Web Admin|Newsletter Editor link above. If you have general questions about the club and/or wish to contact our trustee then click the 'Email Trustee' link above.
