New Battery Backup for Repeater
The Club was able able to replace our failed backup battery at the repeater site with a new battery and charging system from Battery Systems of Moses Lake.  Dave McMains (KI7PBE) helped us with the purchase and gave the club a good deal.  We would highly recommend taking your business to them (or the Wenatchee store) if in the market for batteries.

Judy Chrisco-KA7ZNA (SK)
Sad to report that long time active club member and active Central WA ham Judy Chrisco passed away 8/16/2017.  Although she had moved to Port Townsend a couple years ago she was still able to regularly check in to the Tues night net.  She will be sorely missed.
