Monsanto Amateur Radio Association in St. Louis, Missouri

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

On April 23, 2019, the Monsanto Amateur Radio Association (MARA)/(MARAStL), voted to formally disband. The removal of the communications tower that held the repeater could be overcome, but the loss of the HF tower, beam and “ ham shack” were resources that could not be duplicated elsewhere. Without an HF station to operate in person or remotely, the club decided to end a run that started in 1965.
