Youth Net - Returning Fall 2023

Started last August 2022, the Youth Net is returning this fall 2023 for its second year on the Lake Washington Ham Club repeaters (K7LWH). Time and day are still TBD. Please contact the Youth Net's coordinator, Jennifer Hoof KK7BRR ( to participate in scheduling coordination or for more information.

This net encourages young amateur operators to connect on the air, practice their radio skills, and talk about their interests, all while building the ham community. The Net Control Operators that coordinate and conduct this net are under eighteen.

  • We have rotating Net Controllers - (youths only for NC positions, of course!).
  • First, we have rounds of check ins for youths (licensed youths and 3rd party traffic under the age of 18)
  • A visitor check-in round for any licensed amateur station who wants to say hello.
  • We have a question of the day; we use a script; we have fun and practice our skills while building community.

If you know of a young ham, new or experienced in this hobby, who is looking for a community of young hams to share with, OR if you are a mentor who would like to participate in this youth initiative, please contact Jennifer Hoof KK7BRR at She will send you the most up to date information!
