The Washington Digital Radio Enthusiasts is a Washington Non-Profit Corporation, and an FCC licensed amateur radio club.
Our purpose is to promote and enjoy digital radio communications with other radio amateurs world-wide, and to help local amateur radio stations within our
coverage area to access world-wide digital radio communications. In case of an emergency, either within our coverage region, or elsewhere in the world
where we can be of service, our facilities and resources shall be available on a priority basis, to help with emergency communications whenever reasonably
possible. In addition, it shall be a valid purpose of this organization to promote itself as a benevolent organization and to benefit our local users amateur
radio activities and improve our organization’s good reputation and public relations within our community.
For the time being, our main focus will be the operation and support of the WA7DRE repeater systems. Our constitution and bylaws will allow an expanded purpose
with members, benefits, dues and regular meetings someday. For now, our purpose is deliberately simplified.
