Milwaukee Radio Amateurs' Club
Meetings consist of club business and a program or open forum for discussion regarding various aspects of amateur radio, electronics, and communications. (Club business is presented as warranted). Many onsite meetings also feature a raffle of various radio and electronics related items, and free magazines and books.
We invite you to attend one of our meetings, meet other hams, and learn about our many activities held throughout the year. Your participation is the engine that makes this club vibrant. Volunteering is also a great way to immerse yourself in the club, and give back to your fellow hams.
We encourage you to invite another ham buddy, or friend who may be interested in amateur radio, to either our meeting net or zoom meeting. Our meetings are on the last Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm (November and December may have exceptions). We are currently not holding in-person meetings due to COVID-19 safety precautions. Each month we will have a 7:00 pm Net on the club repeater, followed by a program/open forum via Zoom.
