2019 is a special year for the Milwaukee Radio Amateurs’ Club (MRAC). We are the only club that can say we’ve been an American Radio Relay League (ARRL) affiliated club for 100 years. To celebrate this unique achievement, MRAC and ARRL will jointly hold the Central Division Convention during Ham Radio Outlet’s Superfest on September 27th and 28th. The club is also hosting a banquet on Friday, September 27th to celebrate with the ARRL and any hams who are interested. RSVP deadline for the banquet is September 13th, 2019.
