Don Rankl, our MARC President

As 2022 draws to a close and 2023 is upon us, it’s a great time to reflect upon the fantastic year M.A.R.C. has had! From celebrating new friendships to sharing favorite traditions, we continue to come together to serve our communities; local, national and beyond.

Welcoming the newest member to providing lifetime members a place to belong and learn continues to be our mission. 

We hope that our even larger vision is to continue to join together to serve a cause not just of our own but for the greater good of humanity. We can’t think of a better way to pursue that than through amateur radio “disguised” as the Massillon Amateur Radio Club! 

“Our” mission doesn’t have to be yours and we look forward to your insight and ideas to help us improve! We appreciate each and every one of you and what you bring to the table. 

Join us in congratulating our outgoing President, Don Wade (W8DEA) – He has provided a tremendous spark in spring-boarding us into the future! We are delighted that he has agreed to continue to serve as our Vice President for the upcoming year!

In just a few short months (March 2023) we will embark on our 96th year as an organization! We are not perfect, we are not exclusive, we are not close-minded! We ARE ready, willing and able to look toward the future with excitement and enthusiasm! 

We sincerely hope and encourage you to continue to be a part of M.A.R.C. in any way that is enjoyable and rewarding for you! All are welcome!

Happy New Year! The Best Is Yet to Come!

73 – N8IVJ (Don Rankl)
