on the Island...
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.

Are you an active ham who would like to volunteer your expertise in communications to help out your community in the event of a disaster? If so, to volunteer, register with your local ARES Emergency Coordinator. The only requirements to join ARES are a willingness to serve and a valid amateur radio license.The ARES Emergency Coordinator for Manitoulin and North Shore is Jim McLean VE3LJM.
ARES groups are volunteer amateur radio operators who come together for the common purpose of providing emergency or auxiliary communications service to public safety and public service organizations, and most individual ARES units operate locally Although the Amateur Radio Emergency Service is a program, the structure is more supportive than directive in nature, providing mostly for mutual assistance in the event of a large-scale emergency.Groups are organized locally by the person holding the position of Emergency Coordinator (EC). The EC maintains full responsibility for organizing the local groups and serving as their leader during operations. The EC is a RAC member, and is generally the point of contact for those wishing to perform Emergency Communications in their local area. The EC may appoint one or several AECs (Assistant Emergency Coordinator) to oversee certain geographical areas, or the EC may appoint by function such as the CANWARN severe weather spotting network.For more Information go to the ARES website for Manitoulin ARES
