The MOTOR CITY RADIO CLUB was founded in 1932 by local amateur radio operators and has over 70 members from the metro area. The club is affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) and was named an ARRL Special Service Club because of its emergency preparedness program, its participation in the Amateur Radio Emergency Service, as well as its technical education classes, community involvement, new amateur radio recruitment, and training.
Motor City Radio Club provides top-notch special events, breakfasts, fox hunts and exams. Along with great community support and participation - a combination that can't be beat! Through the club's commitment, experience, and expertise, the Motor City Radio Club (MCRC) has established a community relationship that will last a lifetime!
Anyone who has an interest in radio theory, radio propagation, construction, practical communications, the Morse code, transmitter hunting, or competitive contesting is welcome! Want to learn how shortwave propagation works? Want to learn how to find hidden transmitters? Want to speak to people in distant lands? Want to reflect radio signals off the moon? Join MCRC and experience whole new worlds!
Amateur Radio is a licensed radio service. To earn a license requires passing examinations regulated by the Federal Communications Commission. But we're not just for people who are already licensed... the members and officers of the MCRC are interested in sharing our enjoyable and interesting hobby with anyone who is curious about Amateur Radio and communications. We're also excited about helping people earn their own Amateur Radio license.
The Motor City Radio Club is a 501(c)3 organization affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) which is a national focal point for Amateur Radio issues, representation, and information. A majority of our members are also League members.
