And don't be shy about adding things like "Adblock+" and Ghostery to make your browsing faster and less burdened by unnecessary ads!

COVID-19 notice:

We're back to operating 'as normal' except that DXpeditions will be open to only COVID vaccinated individuals. We hold these events in small cabins that don't allow for 'social distancing' and mask wearing is impractical, so in an attempt to help those who are immunocompromised or otherwise at risk, we have to insist on this precaution.

Other than that one minor change, operations remain as always, and you can count on MARE to provide the latest in radio news and special events. Our paper bulletin, and the weekly TipSheets remain unchanged, and we will continue to hole in person meetings, and the occasional 'virtual' meeting as well since now that option is available!

AND, please contribute your loggings and other information so we can keep everyone updated. MARE is a club. We work only because members contribute information! We continue to need your input. Please ask if you have questions, and do continue to contribute!

    Links2Go Award

    MARE's schedules page was selected by 'Links2Go' (an independent web page rating service that has since gone off line) as a "Key Resource" in the Shortwave topic, and they considered us an "indispensable resource on the World Wide Web" according to their standards. We're pleased they agreed, even if we've outlasted them!

  • --We are no longer updating a public local events calendar (2012) We do have a calendar of radio events available for our members on the 'members only' page that includes both our events, and those of other clubs and organizations as well as important 'radio events' like DX Tests, contests and the like, so check there for updates and as always .... Please send us details of your radio activity in Michigan and surrounding area and we'll include that event too!

Yes, we've had an email publication for over 28 years now! So exactly how old does that make in in 'internet years'?
