Topics we will cover:

Our second activity meeting will cover building antennas. We will be building a 2m/440 stacked J-Pole. This will be a two hour meeting. If you are interested in taking an antenna home, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This meeting will be in EME 130.
Our club meetings will be the first and third Thursday of the month at 5:00 PM. The location will be EME 206 (the AI lab, directly across the hall from our shack) unless specified otherwise.
The results are in for last Feburary's School Club Roundup, and W7YH placed 5th in the nation! Not bad for our first try for a contest from our on-campus station, espicially as noise-limited as we were!
Its been a while since an update was posted, but things HAVE been happening (albet slowly)!
We have received FAA approval for both of our two top choices (Observatory Hill and Soil Storage). We have received support from EECS in the form of a "failover owner" should the club go dark (something that Capital Planning would want to see).
What's next? We need to get Capital Planning's approval for the site, then start working on donations in ernest.
From http://ceacc.wsu.edu/node/93:Held in the Stephenson Dorm Complex, this event is an opportunity to expose incoming freshmen to your club activities and to encourage them to join your club.As part of our community service to the college, student clubs are encouraged to strength their funding proposals by attending both evenings (Wednesday and Thursday).----
The Palouse Hills Amateur Radio Club will conduct free classes to help interested people obtain a Technician and General level amateur radio license from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Classes will be held Tuesday evenings from 7:00 until 9:00 starting September 15 through November.
W7UQ at UI will be hosting this month's combined meeting, which will be a tour of the W7UQ shack and demos. Also, thouse WSU members who whish to have access to the W7UQ shack can get orientated and get a door code to their facility.
UPDATE: We WILL be participating in the Salmon Run! Join the list serve (contact us page) and ask the list for information where. It will NOT be on campus, as we don't have antennas up yet.This is Wasington's QSO Party: A contest where the rest of the US tries to make contact with Washington stations. Awards are given out based on scores, worked all WA counties, etc. As Whitman County is not a very active county in Amateur Radio, this should be a fun, high-demand contest to work! (now, if we only had a functional station....)
