       VETERAN'S DAY WEEKEND  SPECIAL EVENT!

Thanks to all the Amateur Radio Operators that worked us during our Veteran's Day Weekend Special Event!  We appreciate all who joined with us to honor the Veterans that have protected our Freedom.  The first 2 sets of QSL cards have been sent.  Please let us know if you are a current or former Service member or if a friend or relative is a current or former service member so our club can thank them for their service.  All QSL cards received will be presented to the club at the December club meeting.  Thanks again for participating in our special event honoring Veterans.  We look forward to receiving your QSL card or a QSL card request from you.  Please don't forget to include a SELF ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE if you want a QSL card.

The Radio Amateurs of the Gorge radio club was formed in the late 1960's by a group of hams living in Hood River county.  The club meetings were held in the upstairs meeting room above the Paris Fair department store  We met monthly to share ideas and talents to promote the radio hobby.  Most all had build their own equipment.  Two meters was new on the agenda and much time was spent converting mobile phone equipment from the telephone service to be used for mobile or base 2 meter stations.  All were crystal controlled.

Fast forward to today and there are 5 VHF/UHF repeaters in the area.  A Winlink digital node exists to provide Email, BBS and NTS services to local hams.  VHF and HF Nets are available to interested folks.  ARES groups are in place in the gorge but Radio Amateurs of the Gorge have not lost sight of it's original purpose.  TO:

1. Provide radio theory training to the public in all phases of amateur radio.

2. Provide training and instruction to members to improve skills relating to amateur radio.

3. Provide communication in times of emergency, charitable, public, or other community activities.

4. Provide a meeting place to socialize and to promote the exchange of ideas to further enhance the hobby of amateur radio.

We are committed to furthering the growth of the Amateur Radio hobby.  The Radio Amateurs of the Gorge are proud to offer ham radio and emergency services related workshops and license exam training classes.  Activities during the year help promote camraderie among members.  Our public service support for civic events promote good will between amateur radio operators and our local or regional communities.

Members of W7RAG reside in Hood River county Oregon, Wasco county Oregon Skamania county Washington, or Klickitat county Washington.  We also welcome any and all that have an interest in amateur radio to join us.
