Island County Amateur Radio Club members recently selected new officers to lead Whidbey’s only ham radio club next year. They include, from left, Oak Harbor resident Clifton Allen, president; Wayne Jeffers of Freeland, vice president; Oak Harbor resident Julie Mercer, secretary; and Brian Woloshin of Langley, treasurer.
The club’s more than 60 operators scattered throughout Whidbey regularly support local communities and governmental agencies with communications support during emergencies and special events such as parades and sports events. The club meets monthly at the county commissioners’ hearing room, 1 N.E. 6th St., Coupeville. The public is invited to attend. For more information, visit www.w7avm.org.
