Missouri Repeater Council, Inc.
Attention MRC members. There will be a change to the Annual Update process that will be starting soon. At the 2001 annual MRC meeting, a motion passed to suspend the $10 per year dues until the balance in the treasury dropped below $5000. That occurred earlier this year and at the 2013 annual MRC meeting, a motion passed to reinstate the collection of $10 in annual dues for each repeater. A PayPal account has been set up for those choosing to remit electronically. PayPal assesses a convenience fee of 60 cents. Therefore, the dues payment will be $10.60 if paying on-line.
You have reached the Missouri Repeater Council’s (MRC) web page. We hope you find this site useful and we welcome your comments. The purpose of the MRC is to provide frequency coordination services in the bands allocated to amateur repeaters, to serve as a forum for technical standardization in the Amateur Radio Service, to promote common events, and to help provide community service through the usage of Amateur Radio and Amateur Repeaters.
The MRC was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1984 to serve as the central clearinghouse for Amateur repeater coordination in the state of Missouri.
In 1985 the MRC became a charter member of the Mid-America Coordination Council, Inc. (MACC) for the purpose of standardizing coordination and technical criteria among the 21 member states. While the MRC has its own policies and procedures, they closely follow the policies of the umbrella organization.
The MRC is a member of the National Frequency Coordinators’ Council, Inc. (NFCC) and has been certified as complying with the NFCC standards.
In the navigation pane on the left, you will find the list of Amateurs who have volunteered to serve on the MRC. The Band Plan tab breaks down the Frequency Use Plan for each band from 28 MHz through 23 cm. In the Coordination tab you can find the Guidelines and an Application form for new or modified coordination requests. Many documents related to MRC policies and decisions are posted under the Documents tab. The Directory tab allows you to sort the Amateur repeaters in Missouri in a number of ways.
The MRC exists to support an agreed upon plan to minimize the occurrences of interference between systems and to provide an organization through which coordination can be obtained. Do not hesitate to contact us with issues relating to Amateur repeater coordination in Missouri.
