In the March of 2017 MRAC was contacted by Chris KC9UXC about the interest of Hales Corners Lutheran School in the ARISS project. They were in need of a ham club to help with satellite communications. The club decided it was a great idea and said yes. However, their school was not selected for this round.

The board decided this would be a good club project. HRO Milwaukee has offered the use of some old KLM Satellite antennas and a Yaesu 5400B rotor. A working group has been created to build up a portable antenna setup that can be transported and setup anywhere.

Please check back on this page to see our progress.

If you are interested in being a part of the project please email the club at
