SR2019 participation patchThe "Salmon Run" is the Washington State QSO Party radio contest held every year in September, sponsored by the Western Washington DX Club.

FUNDRAISER EVENT

The Club holds a fundraiser event every year in conjunction with the Salmon Run contest. Pledges by club members are often a dollar amount multiplied by the total number of Washington counties worked by the Club's station W7DK during the contest period.

Some members venture out to make contacts from other Washington counties by operating temporary portable expedition stations or mobile rover stations.  In normal times, 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.

Of course, in the time of COVID-19, our operation is much more controlled with a very limited number of participants in the clubhouse at any given time and careful social distancing measures.

2020 CONTEST

This year we activated W7DK using two stations on different floors of the clubhouse, and we made our clean sweep!
