Become a community member
The mission of the Lake Washington Ham Club is to create a positive and welcoming environment for all amateur radio operators and enthusiasts where everyone can learn, enjoy the hobby, explore new challenges, and build life-long friendships.
Our monthly club meeting and Rain or Shine events are free and open to all. We do not require that you have a current amateur radio license to participate. We do ask that all participants show respect to one another as peers and conduct ourselves to earn that respect at all times.
Many hams stretching back decades have pitched in to support the club through their annual donations, gifts of time, and other resources. Collectively, these contributions enhance the capabilities and opportunities that make LWHC the special place that it is. Club activities, repeaters, and other infrastructure are funded through our community members.
Community Members get access to our Groups.io email group for great discussions, resources, opportunities to serve on committees, membership in the LWHC ClubLog league and access to our vibrant amateur radio community.
The email group is moderated so there may be a delay between the time that you make the request to join and the request completing. If you have made the request to join the group and you do not get a response within a day or so, contact Brian, KB2S (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Applying for lifetime membership
Life Memberships are now being offered to current club members in good standing. A member in good standing is one that pays their dues and participates in club activities.
Details of the Life Membership program are:
- The fee is $75 as a one-time fee. Life Membership is subject to the approval of the club’s Board of Directors. In the event your request is denied, your one-time fee will be refunded. While the standard way to become a life member is through this one-time fee, the Board may also consider large donations of funds or equipment as a valid criterion for Life Membership.
- Each call sign requires the one-time payment of life membership fee. No family plan will be considered.
- The club waives the annual membership dues for Life Members for their lifetime. Non-transferable.
- If a life member moves away and if the member requests it, the account would be placed on inactive status and could be reactivated by a simple request later on.
- We request that the Life members verify and/or update their contact information for the roster at least once a year.
IMPORTANT: To continually improve the program, the Life Membership program is subject to change at the discretion of the club’s Board of Directors. If changes are implemented, details of the changes will be published 90 days prior to the changes becoming effective. In an extraordinary event, the club’s Board of Directors reserves the right to revoke a Life Membership. If this happens the member’s one-time fee will be refunded minus the annual renewal rate for each year as a Life Member.
