W4GGM MAURY AMATEUR RADIO CLUB

VHF:147.12+ MHz (Tone 127.3) ; UHF:443.175+ MHz (Tone 100.0)

www.w4ggm.org

     The Maury Amateur Radio Club (MARC) was originally founded in 1976 by several HAM operators in the area. The first repeater license had the call of WR4AIX and was issued Feb.10, 1978. The Club operated under a couple more calls until it received the current call on Jan.6, 1998 of Finas Allen W4GGM (SK), a founding member of the MARC, who became a silent key on Aug.28 1993.

   The members own and operate two repeaters located 2 miles south of Columbia, TNOne is a VHF (147.12+, tone 127.3), and the other a UHF (443.175+ tone 100.0). The aging VHF repeater was replaced on December 17, 2017 with a newer one. It is a Yaesu DR-2X Digital Fusion Repeater. It operates not only in normal conventional analog FM voice mode but it is capable of operating in C4FM Fusion digital mode. C4FM is a very reliable communication mode with clear voice technology permitting high quality voice communication at longer distances.

   This new repeater also incorporates AMS or Automatic Mode Select technology, which instantly recognizes a received signal as C4FM digital or conventional analog FM. The transceiver switches operating modes to match the received signal. Even if you are operating in digital mode, it automatically switches so you can communicate instantly with a received FM station. This removes the need to manually switch between the two modes. This also means that no one is left out. If you have a radio that does not have the digital mode will still be able to communicate on the new repeater in conventional analog FM mode also. If you transmit in this mode the repeater will recognize it and switch everyone to your mode so you will not be left out. And if you have a new digital transceiver that operates the C4FM Fusion mode, you will be able to enjoy the crisp clear communication with friends that the digital signal transmits.

   You DO NOT have to be a member to visit any club event or meeting, or use the VHF/UHF repeaters. But if you are interested in joining, we would love to have you as a member. Please visit our website for more info on events, updates, photos, and/or to download an application.

   Club Meetings are on the 2nd Monday and Club Breakfasts on the 4th Saturday each month. There is a Digital Newsletter put out each month. Our VE Team gives tests every other month on the odd months, (Jan, Mar, etc). We supply communication for the local events, participate in ARES, Skywarn, & MTEARS Nets, and supply emergency communication during weather & other events.

   The MARC is an American Radio Relay League (ARRL) affliated club. Please visit our website at w4ggm.org for the latest updates, events, photos and information !

   Made contact with us on Field Day or some other event? We would love to exchange QSL cards with you !
