We had a successful test session in October now it is time to test again  This Saturday January 23, 2021.

MAC Club will be sponsoring testing for Tech, General or Extra Jan 23 at noon.

Please email VERN at  if would like to reserve a seat to test this Saturday.  Testing will be COVID-safe by testing outdoors in a garage on Chicago's north side, with the garage door open. Dress warm.

As always, bring $15 for each test. When you pass your first test you can take the next test-up but it will cost you another $15.
Take the test this Saturday! You will find out your result right away.

Note:  This is testing for Ham Radio licenses Tech, General and/or Extra... not Covid-19 tests! hihi.

Thanks to Vern K9VRT and his volunteer examiners for making this possible.


Next MAC (meeting) sometime in 2021
In the meantime we encourage everyone to utilize the Repeater, The Big Mac Repeater!
 Learn, communicate and enjoy.
Also, 9:00pm every Sunday night is 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.
