How it all started
Inspired by belief in truth and unfettered flow of information between all good hams, and frustrated by club policies and politics getting in the way of these things, SnoCoHams was conceived by Bob Huson WA7HYD (SK).
Bob Casteneda KC7QR and Bob Huson WA7HYD worked together to implement the original SnoCoHams.net web page and e-mail reflector, which Bob KC7QR maintained until he moved out of the area in May of 2007. At that time Bob WA7HYD took over maintenance and operation of both the web page and reflector. Bob continued in that role until he passed away in May of 2013.
Bob felt too that there should be activities for hams to enjoy free from politics and structure that sometimes preoccupy an official club; hence, the monthly Second Saturday SnoCoHams Breakfast was born.
