2019 Mike & Key a success


The 2019 Mike & Key swap meet and electronics show was a great success for the Capitol Peak Repeater Group. We came away from there with a little over $1900.00 in sales and still have things left over. As mentioned in a previous post a few of those items will be available for sale at the annual meeting on March 31, 2019. There will be a silent auction also for a few items. Below are some pictures that Don KD7AVI took during the day of our area at the show.

Something new

Since not all items sold at the Mike & Key show this past Saturday something new will be tried at the annual meeting on March 31 2019. There will be some items that will be held in a silent auction. Other items will be priced accordingly and will be sold. So bring a few extra dollars to the meeting and go home with some really great stuff. A list will be forthcoming of items for sale. All proceeds go into the maintenance fund for the repeater.

Rescheduled Annual Meeting

Please plan to attend the RESCHEDULED Capitol Peak Repeater ANNUAL MEETING on Sunday, March 31, 2019.

Because of the extreme weather we had on February 9th we had to cancel and reschedule the meeting. This is the only meeting we have during the year and is open to all hams. Get the latest reports and updates to the repeater. I think you will find it interesting and you can meet the people who you talk to on the system. The meeting will take place at the South Bay Fire Department at 1:00 pm. (3506 Shincke Rd NE, Olympia, WA 98506) 


There has been work done on the repeater system like antenna repairs, more wiring clean up and much more.  We will also talk about 2019 plans of replacing the aging NOAA radio with a new up to date radio, installing a new VHF APRS digipeater-Igate to the system and the continued ongoing maintenance to the system.


The Repeater Group will again have two tables at the Mike and Key Swap Meet. This will take place on March 9, 2019 at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. We are asking for your donations of good used ham and electronic equipment for this event. This is the only fund raiser that we have during the year and it is very important for the repeater maintenance fund. Please clean out your ham shack and see if there is something you might be willing to donate to this worthy cause. If you have a donation, contact K7CAH, or KC7VCG  before March 8th and we can arrange to pick up the equipment. Thank-you.






See you at the Annual Meeting…………………………………… Jeremy KC7VCG
