The Army MARS repeater was actually suggested by members of the Navy Marine Corp program who asked if they might "borrow" the Army Repeater for some training they were doing. Not having one to loan out a crash program was started to obtain, set up and run one for all members of MARS. We hope that members of all services will keep it busy.
ALL MARS (U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy & Marine Corp) SERVICES ARE WELCOME TO USE THE ARMY MARS REPEATER.
Civil Air Patrol Members are also welcome to use the repeater.
