2014-10-02 — The repeater is down. Watch the “Club Repeater” section on this page for updates.
2014-09-06 — Club meetings are moving! MARC social meetings have moved to the WNIT building in downtown South Bend. Changes in the American Red Cross organization are leading up to the closing of the South Bend offices where we have previously held our meetings. Starting with the September social meeting we will be at the new location.
The W9AB repeater operates on 147.225 MHz (+). No PL is currently required, but a 131.8 Hz PL will be instituted in the Fall of 2014.
The MARC repeater is down as of the week of Sept 29, 2014. We are in the process of relocating the repeater, assessing its condition, performing maintenance, and enabling PL. An ETA for bringing it back online is not yet established, but we hope to have it operational some time in November.
Membership is open to all amateurs and radio enthusiasts. Download a membership form here and mail it in or bring it to the next meeting to join!
