MARC is recognized by the ARRL as a Special Service Club (SSC). You may be wondering, “What is an SSC, and how does this affect me?”
What is a Special Service Club?
A club that exists to go above and beyond for their communities and for Amateur Radio is what defines a Special Service Club (SSC). They are the leaders in their Amateur Radio communities who provide active training classes, publicity programs, and actively pursue technical projects and operating activities.
What about MARC?
As an ARRL Special Service Club, we have met our agreement to develop our skills in specified areas during the past two years in accordance with the guidelines in the ARRL SSC Active Club On-Line Primer.
We have worked closely with our Affiliated Club Coordinator throughout the year to develop these skills. We schedule regular, active training classes to help prospective hams study to pass their required FCC license testing. We have a recently improved publicity program to educate the community with regards to our function.
We have club members who actively pursue technical projects and operating activities. We sponsor and participate in important ARRL and hobby related events such as Field Day.
