The Puget Sound Repeater Group is a non-profit organization that maintains and operates a 2-meter FM Amateur Radio repeater system in the Seattle area, serving primarily North Seattle, from about Downtown through Shoreline, and east to about Bothell (although we’ve had people use the repeater regularly from as far away as Olympia and Everett).We currently have more than 200 members. The repeater is maintained by member volunteers for use by members and non-members alike. The repeater hosts several regular nets. Anyone with an Amateur license is welcome to use the repeater.
Proposed changes to the bylaws can be viewed at: psrg.org/changes

I have the Android App for Echolink on my phone and we made some contacts.
Columbia Center Building took a direct hit from lightning a few days ago. The WW7SEA (444.550) repeater survived due to a lightning arrestor and some luck..
