Northwest Michigan Amateur Radio Club (NMARC)

8ballThe Northwest Michigan Amateur Radio Club (NMARC) is a Ham Radio club based in Grand Traverse County Michigan USA. (Around Traverse City) The goal of the club is, first and foremost, to be a place for like-minded radio amateurs to interact and enjoy good fellowship. Rather than a stuffy business meeting, we choose to meet in a restaurant back room over food and drink.

No current meetings are currently scheduled.  Check in on the 145.27 repeater to learn where and when we will meet next.
