  • Mission:
  • The Central Michigan Amateur Radio Club is a 501 (c)7 non-profit, specializing in education of our local residents. We offer Amateur Radio Classes and Testing, as well as SKYWARN Training annually. We provide uncompensated Amateur Radio (Ham Radio) coverage of local walk-a-thons, bike-a-thons and other such activities. We also have a large base of local Amateurs, who are trained spotters for SKYWARN with the National Weather Service. We operate Nets, where our trained spotters call in severe weather conditions, tornados, hail and things of that nature. Additionally, in the event of a severe weather event, we have people trained to go out and do damage assessments in the affected areas.

  • History:
  • CMARC was 'born' in the early years of Amateur Radio. We have grown through the years, adding an impressive group of Youth members, as well as Lady Ham Radio Operators. But it wasn't until 1998 that we really got active with Emergency Management in Lansing, MI. From this early start, we established the Lansing/Ingham Amateur Radio Public Service Corps. This group is completely dedicated to Emergency work and is headed by Tom Shaver (KC8NJK).
