We are an ARRL club chartered in 1949, with a club call of W8PIF. Our membership currently stands at 50. We operate two repeaters: 147.000+ (107.2), a wide area coverage system, and the 444.075+ (107.2) which is basically a local coverage repeater. The 147.000 is also connected 24/7 to Echolink node #481872. All licensed hams are welcome and encouraged to use our repeaters. Thanks to KC8DOA for providing us with space for the 147.000, and to
The Harbors Retirement Facility for the 444.075.
Enjoy our site and return often to view new photos and club information. Thanks to K8IR for hosting our echolink system.

Silent Key.. Mark Erickson passed away on Sat. Dec. 9. He was club secretary for several terms. He always checked in to the Sunday evening "Kandy Net". KD8ESH was active in civic affairs and club activities, and will be missed by many. M&M ARC extends its sympathy to his family.
