The "Salmon Run" is the Washington State QSO Party radio contest held every year in September, sponsored by the Western Washington DX Club.
The Club holds a fundraiser event every year in conjunction with the Salmon Run contest. Pledges by Club Members may be a dollar amount multiplied by the total number of Washington counties worked by the Club's station W7DK during the contest period. Some hams venture out to make contacts from other Washington counties by operating temporary portable expedition stations or mobile rover stations. Others come by the Clubhouse to help with the fundraiser festivities or maybe grab the microphone or CW key to make some contacts on the air. The more experienced hams love to crank up the power, log contacts at an extremely rapid pace, and dazzle visitors with their operating skills. Members and their guests are all welcome to enjoy a potluck dinner downstairs in the Clubhouse, which begins at about 6:00 PM on Saturday evening.
