Greetings Fellow Amateurs and Friends;
On behalf of the Manitoulin Amateur Radio Club Inc. (MARC) executive I want to extend a big thank you to all of you for the support and great turn out we had for our 30th Anniversary Picnic in Little Current. The turn out was amazing far beyond what I expected, and the food was truly amazing with the variety and quantity available. A special thanks to Lorraine & Jim McLean for organizing the event and making it come together without looking like it was an effort. To all the others (too many to mention because I know I would forget someone) thank you for pitching in and assisting in all your capacities this is what makes the event such a huge success. To those that traveled a distance to join us thanks so much. To our sister clubs Elliot Lake, Sudbury and Algoma thanks for all your support also. I am proud to report that we had 101 in attendance without counting the children that were there. Just let they said there is no ham activity in the north.
After 30 years in operation it says a lot to have an organization remain like the MARC, the key to its success is it members and friends that participate without you there would be nothing. To those that paid their dues and made donations and bought the door prize tickets we did very well so thank you from the bottom of my heart this support help the club to function. I hope you will continue to join us in future events. The amateur community is a great group of people lets support one another like this example and enjoy, remember the hobby is to have fun.
73 to all and thanks again.

The OPP 'Golden Helmets' precision motorcycle team will be performing in Little Current on Wednesday August 1, 2018 and the Manitoulin ARES group has agreed to assist with this event. We will require volunteers to support the community by providing traffic and crowd control throughout the afternoon of this event. If you can help us, please contact me at the email address provided on the graphic.
Tired of hearing the digital "noise" on RMI when it's in the C4FM mode? The repeater DOES transmit a CTCSS tone of 156.7hz while in FM mode, allowing you to set your tone squelch on your NON C4FM radio...when it is properly set, you will see the signal strength meter go over, but you will hear no digital squawk...
Not sure how to set tone squelch on your radio? Contact Rusty or Al... I am sure we can walk you thru it!
