MARC will be presenting two special awards at the Dallas Regional Science and Engineering Fair (DRSEF) on February 24, 2018. Started in 1957, the DRSEF is one of the largest and highest quality regional student science fairs in the world. We still need a few MARC members to serve as judges for the event. Since our area of interest is radio-related your required experience and education is only related to that area of interest (i.e., if you are a member of our club you have met the experience/education requirement). The DRSEF serves public and private middle and high schools from approximately 18 North Texas counties. MARC is the only radio club that serves in the capacity of a Special Awards sponsor for this event. For more information, see the February Newsletter or contact Bill - N5YZ.
MARC sponsors three nets each week. All radio amateurs are invited to participate.
