Welcome to the ARRL Michigan Section

Welcome To the Michigan Section Web Page. It has been several years since the Michigan Section has had its own web page.

Many thanks go to David Adams, N9UXU for his leadership in developing the site, to Jay Nugent, WB8TKL for his patience with yours truly as I learn more than I ever wanted to know about this stuff, and finally to our webmaster, Gordon Baldwin, W8CT for stepping forward to manage and administer this page for the Michigan Section.

Our plan is to create and maintain a portal to all things Michigan ARRL and to provide space for the Section Staff to communicate with the hams of Michigan, as well as an opportunity for you to communicate with them.

We expect the website to be continuously evolving and improving over time. All constructive comments are welcome.

Enjoy………..

    Just wondering, if there is anyway as a ham in Michigan if there is any way I could be of help in Michigan and get more involved in moving ham radio forward in Michigan. We have a very active club here in Genesee County and I’m sure if we could help we would get more involved. We are holding our club Field Day again in June and we will have at least 8 Transceivers going on field day maybe more if we can get more generators at field day.
    Please4 let me know if I and we could help you in any way.
    Thanks, Bill KD8ZRI

    1. Hi Bill,

      Thanks for your inquiry. The Michigan ARRL Section is always in need of active amateurs. The first and foremost way to help is to be an ARRL member. Thank you for doing that. Other ways to assist are to become involved in public service activities. Genesee County has a rich history of public service and I am certain that they would be happy to take you into the fold.

      Public service also takes place on the Section’s HF nets. Communication is a complicate issue when it comes to accurately transmitting a message from point A to point B. We offer our services to all levels of state and local entities and in order to be good at something, we must practice and never stop learning. Proper net operation is an acquired skill. Likewise being able to operate using several modes increases our value to our “customers”. You can find a list of Michigan HF nets in my section news column and I cordially invite you to listen in, learn a bit about how the nets operate and jump in. I am a regular on the MACS, MITN, and QMN nets. In addition the ARPSC net on 3932 at 1700 local time on Sundays is the gathering spot for all public service activities in Michigan. You are welcome to join us. All levels of Amateur Radio Public Service Corps personnel are present on that net, including myself.

      As for Genesee County, the amateur radio emergency coordinator is Timothy Crane, KD8VUI Cell Phone: 810-429-6180
      eMail: kd8vui@gmail.com and I am sure he would be delighted to hear from you. He can explain the activities that take place in your county and how you can join in.

      I could go on for nearly forever, but I will let you look around and see what interests you.

      Thanks for stopping by our website and leaving a comment.

      73,

      Larry, WB8R
