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.

Ham Radio Seminar

In April this year, the Manitoulin Amateur Radio Club held a very successful radio class for those wanting to obtain their amateur radio license.

We are pleased to announce that through the cooperation of the Aundeck-Omni-Kaning administration, we are going to honor that promise by holding an 'information day' for anyone recently licensed or interested hams who would like to learn proper radio procedure or have any questions they may have.

                    13 Hill Street (off Hwy 540) west of Little Current
When: Saturday October 28, 2017
Time: starting at 10:00AM - 2:00PM(approximately)
Bring your radios (if you have one), your questions, bring a friend.
