on the Island...

The History D-STAR, a standard published in 2001, is the result of three years of research funded by the Japanese government and administered by the JARL to investigate digital technologies for amateur radio. The research involved Japanese radio manufacturers and other observers. Icom provided the equipment used for development and testing. D-STAR radios and repeaters have been tested extensively and are now ready for public use. MARC has 2 D_STAR repeaters on the island, with the distinction of being the first ones in Northern Ontario.

Yaesu FUSION Repeater

YAESU DR-1X (Wires-X) 144/430 Dual Band C4FM/FM Digital Repeater

The YAESU DR-1X is a digital/conventional FM dual mode repeater that covers the VHF and UHF amateur radio bands. It was developed for use with System Fusion.
The Manitoulin Amateur Radio club has replaced the ICOM repeater used for our main site VE3RMI (147.270MHz) with the new system fusion unit. The new repeater is running at full power and has great coverage, both FM and Digital modes throughout the area with C4FM technology providing superior audio quality and crisp clear voice.

More info on the repeater itself can be found here...


Basic Amateur Radio Course 

The basic radio course for 2017 hosted by MARC INC, is now in the history books. Thank you to all the members who contributed in their own way to making this year's class a successful event.

The executive would also like to thank our friends at Aundeck Omni Kaning First Nation, and the members of the AOK Fire Department for providing us with the use of their great facility and the wonderful lunch they served (both days). 

As a result of this endeavor, we would like to congratulate the 21 new hams who are embarking on their journey through the wonderful hobby of amateur radio. Some of the new inductees elected to join our fraternity, and as a result of this,  our club membership has now been bolstered to 124 members, up from 114.
