Supporters & Sponsors
Since each repeater owner is responsible for their repeater and it's expenses, we don't rely on any funding. However, there are times when we need some help with equipment, technical guidance, or specialized tools. Drawing from our community, we have found lot's of support. We would like to recognize them here.

Silke Communications - Gary Rose - Bremerton
Most commercial two-way radio shops have hams that work for them, yet they do their best to stay away from doing business with hams due to their sometimes frugal budgets or requests for handouts. Gary at Action understands that we support community missions supported by personal finances. Understand that he works to make a living and his company is out to make a profit. That said, Gary offers very reasonable pricing to the amateur community.
