Elmer_U is the Montgomery Amateur Radio Club’s mentoring initiative and, of course, in the Ham Radio community, mentoring is called Elmering.   We like to conduct these sessions in a casual, hands-on environment.  The present focus is on HF,  SSB (phone) operations.  But, we are not limiting ourselves to that genre.  We are also relatively fluent in CW and VHF/UHF procedures.  There are no lectures.  We discuss and pass along out past experiences, triumphs and failures.  

The plan is to hold these sessions in the Montgomery Amateur Radio Club’s (MARC) Radio Station, located in the American Red Cross building, off Carmichael Road.  The time and date of these sessions will be posted on the Calendar page on this web site.  They will also be announced on the MARC-LIST, Yahoo site.  If interested, contact us via email: or Entrance to the radio station will normally be made through the first door you come to on the left side of the Red Cross Building, as you faced it.  We will be monitoring the 146.84 (no tone) and 444.45 (100hz tone) repeaters. Cel phone 652-9055.  When a session date is posted, please let us know if you ar interested in attending.  Also, let us know if you have any particular area of interest or need special assistance. 

Don’t be shy, give it a try.
