Club Information

Get On The Air

The Milwaukee Radio Amateurs’ Club is launching Ham Radio Boot Camp, a day-long series of how-to presentations, workshops, and a Q&A forum designed to help newly licensed operators get on the air. We recognize many newly licensed operators struggle with getting on the air to fully enjoy their new hobby, so we are extending the expertise of our club members to help new hams enjoy this fascinating hobby. Our Ham Radio Boot Camp takes other similar training venues to the next level with workshops, local knowledge, and expert Q&A. For more information, visit Ham Radio Boot Camp.


The MRAC holds monthly meetings on the last Thursday of the month (November and December may have exceptions). Due to the continuation of COVID protocol, our new meeting location is unavailable at this time. We will continue our “Meeting On The Air” followed by a program and social exchange via Zoom.
