Welcome to the Midwest Military Radio Collectors Group!

Dedicated to preserving and honoring the Voices of Victory


MMRCG – The Midwest Military Radio Collector’s Group represents an informal group of individuals that share a common interest in the collection, restoration, operation, and free

exchange of information pertaining to military radio and related equipment.   Our intention is the group will be loosely structured, with membership consisting of those who participate, whether in person at events, on the air, or via the MMRCG groups.io board.  The success of this group depends on participation so please watch this page for announcements and future news regarding nets and activities.


ANNOUNCEMENTS

MIDWEST MILITARY RADIO COLLECTORS GROUP – FIRST SATURDAY 40 METER AM NET

The Midwest Military Radio Collectors Group was formed a year ago to encourage the restoration and use of military radio equipment, building on the success of similar groups on the East and West coasts.   Since the military used both AM and USB for voice modes, both modes have always been welcome on the 40 meter net which meets at 9AM Central time on 7296 kHz.   Starting Nov. 3, the first Saturday of each month will be conducted in the AM mode, similar to the First Wednesday Collins Collectors Association AM net.  All stations are encouraged to check in using AM, regardless of the type of radio used.  The group hopes that having a dedicated AM net once a month will encourage more hams to restore and use military radio

equipment on the air.  To repeat, the First Saturday MMRCG AM Net will be held on 7296 kHz at 9AM (14:00Z) starting on Nov. 3rd, 2018.

MRCA / MMRCG / West Coast Mil Radio Group Weekly 75M USB Rolling Net

The Midwest Military Radio Collectors Group (MMRCG), in conjunction with the Military Radio Collectors Association (MRCA) and the West Coast Military Radio Group are happy to announce the formation of the 75M USB Weekly Rolling Net.  The net will meet weekly on 3996 kHz USB on Wednesday nights, starting at 03:00Z (10:00 PM EST).  Starting at 03:00Z on the East Coast, MRCA will call the net.  At 03:30Z, net control will pass to MMRCG .  At 04:00Z (8 pm EST), net control will pass to the West Coast Military Radio Group.  The success of this net depends on favorable propagation.  The rolling net will start effective November 7th, 2018.
