K7LWH, the Lake Washington Ham Club, is a radio community project designed to help 9-12 year olds earn an Amateur Radio License.

The project was started in 1993 after ICOM of America agreed to loan an elementary classroom an amateur radio. The classroom teacher, Dave Condon, then received help through the Boeing amateur radio group to earn both the required Novice and Technician class license.

From that start in 1993 the amateur radio project has gone on to license some 1000 students and parents. In 2007 130 9-10 year olds and their parents earned their amateur license.

Currently, ICOM of America, Alinco USA, and the ARRL sponsor the program. The children have written volume 2-volume 5 of the "Adventures of Zack and Max" which is an ICOM comic series on radio. The comic can be obtained at the ICOM OF AMERICA website as a download and they are often given out at ICOM trade show events. Volume 2, "Lost in Seattle" deals with emergency service, Volume 3 "Maddy goes to England" deals with International Goodwill, Volume 4 "Field Day" deals with emergency practice training, and Volume 5 "Max in Space" deals with satellite communications and is on display at the Smithsonian Science Center.

The students listen on the K7LWH repeater. The frequency is 145.490 (- offset) (tone 103.5). They would love to visit with you. The IRLP node is 3978. A Kid's Radio Net is held on Sunday night at 7:15 PM, and visitors are always welcome.

In 2006 the club was incorporated and soon will have 501C tax exempt status. Donations of 2 meter equipment and money are accepted. The club's officers are: John Schurman, AA7UJ, president; Conrad Thompson, N7DUO, vice-president; and Dave Condon, KI7YP, secretary-treasurer.
