Is there anyone who knows an Indian ham - a licensed radio amateur - among the readers of the Chinook Observer? If there is such a thing as a Native American radio club anywhere in the country, I'd like to know that, too. If not, I'd be pleased to advise how to start one, as I'm experienced as a trustee of the Willapa Amateur Radio Club and as editor of the monthly e-mailed SPARKS newsletter.
No, I do not have any tribal connection. My long ago bloodline even to French Canada is nothing I am able to prove. And if I could, it would be through my paternal great-great grandmother and the Catholic Church, which church records a friend told me keeps him from recognition by the Chinooks.
What spurred my interest is a letter from a ham elsewhere in the country, who is trying to make a connection for someone in Europe. You can write me as email@example.com
