  This month Bryan Hoyer, K7UDR, returns to share with us what happened when San Juan County lost  their underwater cable connection to the mainland. They had no 911 and severely limited Telephone and Internet. This is the very type of event Island Hams train for twice each month. They tell us that when Cascadia rises, we will all be living islands. Most of us will be able to drive no further than the nearest bridge in any direction as the expectation is that they and most of the overpasses will come down. We will find out how our Amateur Radio neighbors in San Juan County practice and prepare to meet the needs of people who live on islands. 

Bryan is also the creator of the popular DRAWS digital controller board. He will tells us what is happening with Northwest Digital Radio and what exciting things are coming from them as well.

We will have our "For Sale" tables set up if you want to bring in one or two items. And of course, we will have a door prize. As always, we will also have cookies and coffee and time to talk with others about Ham Radio. Bring a Friend! We hope to see you there.
