About The MARC Organization
The Motorcycling Amateur Radio Club, or MARC, was founded in southern
California during 1992 by individuals seeking to combine their love of motorcycling
riding with their communications capability of amateur radio.
Interest in the group continues to grow with membership available in
several state and international chapters. Members seek to 'give
something back" through public service by providing communications at charity
events on a volunteer basis. Each member is individually responsible
for equipping and maintaining all their motorcycle and amateur radio
equipment. Additional information regarding accomplishments and/or
membership in MARC is available from their free web site at http://www.MARC-HQ.org.
