Serving the community through Amateur Radio since 1936.
Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics, and communication together. People use ham radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space. It's fun, social, educational, and can be a lifeline during times of need.

MAARC Morning Get-Together Net
Date: Every Wednesday at 9am
This is an informal net. The focus of the net is to have amateurs checking in to update their fellow Hams on what they have been doing to cope and survive these unusual times. Please join us and let us know how you're doing.
Also, don't forget to take part in any one of the many other nets taking place weekly. See the list below.
Local Amateur Radio Nets
An amateur radio net, or simply ham net, is an “on-the-air” gathering of amateur radio operators. Most nets are open to all Hams but some may be limited to a specific group for training purposes. Please listen to the net operator for specific check-in instructions.
