I am excited to announce our participation in this year's Field Day June 26 and 27. Watch for more info soon.
In the meantime we encourage everyone to utilize the Repeater, The Big Mac Repeater!
 Learn, communicate and enjoy.
Also, all hams are invited to check in at 9:00pm every Sunday night for the MAC NET,
LIVE on the Air.
We hope future meetings will be held in the classroom at the Lincolnwood Community Center in Lincolnwood, Illinois. The classroom is in the same building as the gym near Morse and Lincoln Ave.
Free parking. Meetings were 7:30-9:00pm. Meetings were held on the first Tuesday of most months.
Who knows when our next in person - in classroom meetings will be held? Time will tell.
