SEMARC Breakfast 3rd Saturday each month 7:30L North Pole

Meetings held at the Zion Lutheran Church in Cottage Grove, MN

SEMARC is a general interest amateur radio club devoted to serving its members and the amateur radio community in general.  It is affiliated with ARRL (The National Association for Amateur radio) and supports the programs of that association.

The club has programs that support the community as with our youth education and student scholarship program, public service and emergency communications, participating with the Washington County Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) organization as a partner with the Stillwater Amateur Radio Association (SARA) and providing testing opportunities to get your amateur radio license with our volunteer examiner teams.

Our public service participation includes Special events for the City of Cottage Grove.  In the past our members have participated in "Darien's Dash", "The Woodbury Country Mile", "Strawberry Fest", National Nigh Out and other charitable events requiring radio communications.

As SEMARC meetings are in Cottage Grove, Minnesota the club draws members primarily from South Washington and Dakota Counties but everyone is welcome.

The club's 2 meter repeaters operate on 146.985 MHz with a minus off-set and no tone is required.  This repeater provides excellent coverage with the receiver located in Cottage Grove and its transmitter located in Hastings, MN.  Our second repeater is a Fusion on 147.18 with a plus offset and tone of 74.4 for FM and Digital access DCS #023.

For fun, we have special events like Fox Hunts and we operate during the annual amateur radio "Field Day" in June.  Our meetings include a short "business" meeting and have programs that are either educational or entertaining.
