History

McArc was formed in 1997 by a handful of like-minded hams that wanted to work together to provide communications support for public and emergency service and enjoy radio.  McArc members are located throughout Medina County, and even parts of Bexar, Uvalde and Bandera Counties.  Members range in age from youngster to senior citizen, and from professional to retired individuals.

As an American Radio Relay League (ARRL) affiliated club, McArc conducts Volunteer Examiner (VE) license testing sessions, new ham training and development classes, public relations events, and participates in emergency communications such as Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES), Sky Warn, and other related activities.

McArc holds regular monthly meetings at 0900 (9:00 AM) on the 2nd Saturday of each month at the Zion Lutheran Church in Castroville at 1106 Fiorella Street.
