NEXT CLUB MEETING:  February 9th, 2017

Club Meetings:  The Federal Way Amateur Radio Club meets on the Second Thursday of the month at the Federal Way Public Schools Support  Services Center at 7pm.  The FWPS SSC is located at 1211 South 332nd Street  in Federal Way which is the new facility at the south end of Celebration Park, and just east of the FW Community Center.  All are welcome to attend, and no license required.

At our last club meeting...  Our program for our January 12th club meeting was "Movie Night".  Dan-AF7O presented a video of the World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) 2014 which took place in the Boston, MA area on July 8-14, 2014. The WRTC is a competition between two-person teams of amateur radio operators testing their skills to make contacts with other Amateur Radio operators around the world over a 24 hour period.  All teams use identical antennas from the same geographic region, eliminating all variables except operating ability. WRTC2014 included 59 competing teams from 29 qualifying regions around the world. Competitors represented 38 different countries.
