The M&M Amateur Radio Club is proud to support the DAR Boys & Girls Club Ham Shack with Licensed Ham volunteers to teach the joy of ham radio to children of all ages! This has been a cooperative effort for many years and we are appreciative to be a part of it.
The program was suspended winter 2020 due to the Covid Pandemic, but things are finally getting back to normal!
The Dar Hamshack refers to the DAR Boys & Girls Club of Menominee, who have the only ham shack of all the Boys & Girls Club in the United States! It is staffed with volunteer Control Operators from the Marnette & Menominee Amateur Radio Club. The Current Control operators are Mike (KD8FUE) and Steve (K9STT) who have a great time teaching the kids Amateur Radio and elementary electronics with "Snap Circuits".
Fatima works stations on Yaesu Wires America Link.
