 W7VMI is the ARRL registered Amateur Radio club for Vashon and Maury Islands. Vashon has more than 100 registered ham radio operators, and many of them are club members. The club has no dues. Hams in the past have donated equipment for the club to sell - often by bequest as "​silent keys". And we've been very fortunate to receive grants from the Fire Department, VashonBePrepared,​ and Rotary for some gear. We're also pretty much all skinflints and pool our skills, so we don't spend much. W7VMI is the ARRL registered Amateur Radio club for Vashon and Maury Islands.
