We hope the next MAC (meeting) will be sometime in 2021. 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,

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.
