The Madera County Amateur Radio Club was formed for public service, education, scientific and recreational purposes of amateur radio and to elevate the standards of  operating practices and ethics in amateur radio communications.


This is the vault that houses the 147.180 and the 441.175 repeaters along with the tower that supports the antennas over looking the San Joaquin Valley.

Elevation: 4540 ft.

This is the rack that holds the 2 meter and 440 repeaters and supporting equipment. This picture was taken before the 440 repeater was installed.
The Madera County Amateur Radio Club net is every Tuesday at 7:00 PM on the 147.180 (+) 2 meter repeater. The club holds monthly meetings on the first Thursday of every mouth at 7:00 PM at the Madera County Library at 121 N. G St. Madera, Ca. in the Blanche Galloway Community Room and everyone is welcome to attend. Membership in the Madera County Amateur Radio Club (MCARC) is on an annual basis from July 1st through June 30th of each year. Membership dues for the club are $15.00 for individuals or $20.00 for families with two or more licensed amateurs that live in the same household. Newly licensed amateurs from a Madera V.E. test session will receive a complimentary first year membership and any licensed amateur under the age of 16 will receive free membership if there is no licensed parent or guardian in the same house hold. A portion (40%) of the club dues go to support the 147.180 and 441.175 club repeaters. Anyone wishing to support the repeaters are encouraged to join the club. However, anyone may send a contribution in any amount specifically to support the repeater. These funds are kept in a separate account and are used exclusively to support the repeater. Mail dues or contributions to Madera County Amateur Radio Club, P.O. Box 251, Madera, Ca. 93639-0251
