Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.

 At the Marion County EOC (Emergency Operations Center) in Columbia, MS.

All amateur radio operators and those interested in becoming Amateur Radio operators are welcome to attend, or even if you just want to learn more about what we do.

The Marion County Ham Radio Club exists to promote, support and provide learning opportunities related to ham radio. Members of the amateur radio community possess the knowledge, equipment, experience, authorization and desire to provide emergency communications wherever the need exists. We can also provide communications during community events like marathons, sporting events and public celebrations. We recruit new enthusiasts through free classes and mentoring. There are no age limits for ham radio licensing so all are encouraged to participate.

Join us on the Columbia 147.285 repeater, tone is 123.0.
