The Metrocrest Amateur Radio Society is an active radio club. We have many activities throughout the year related to a variety of ham radio interests.
Hams & Eggs by Remote
Due to the ongoing emergency, the dining room of our beloved Whataburger on the tollway is closed. Drive-through is still available, so if you wish, you can pick up your favorite breakfast at the window. Better yet, stay at home and scramble your own eggs.
Starting Saturday, March 28, at 10:00 AM CDT, MARS will host a Health & Welfare Net on our 145.21 repeater (offset -6 kHz; tone 110.9). This will be a semi-controlled net. Andy Parcel, KE5KOF, will be net control* but it’s going to be more open-ended. We want to know that you and yours are safe, and if there is anything another member can do for you.
And we want to know what radio projects or other fun things you have found to do. Share them with everyone! You might give someone a good idea.
As always, please follow appropriate Repeater Etiquette. Until then, we’ll see you Saturday (or any other day) on the radio.
