The Washington Salmon Run is basically a Worked All Washington or Washington QSO Pary type of event familiar to other state QSO parties. The Washington Salmon Run is actually an off-shoot of the Boeing Employee’s Amateur Radio Society (BEARS) took place on September 17-19, 1966 when it was actually known as the Washington State QSO Party. The Washington State QSO Party ceased in 1987 only to be resumed by the Western Washington DX Club in 1991. The name of Washington Salmon Run came about as the the former Washington State QSO Party awarded a bushel of apples to the winner while the current prize is a package of Salmon. The Washington Salmon Run is a fun event and you can always work on your Worked All Washington awards.
Tilt-N-Raise and Washington Salmon Run
The use of the Tilt-N-Raise antenna mount in the Washington Salmon Run event is a great idea. You can use the Tilt-N-Raise to get your antenna up in short order and then you can concentrate on getting the rest of your gear operational. Think of the extra Washington counties you and your group (if you are in one) can have in the logs. The antenna is a major part of an amateur radio station operating in Washington Salmon Run and the last thing you need to worry about is whether the antenna will stay upright during the Washington Salmon Run. If you have yet to buy a Tilt-N-Raise then just use our link to order a Tilt-N-Raise for yourself, then you can rest easy while working the Washington Salmon Run or any other radio event.
