Upcoming events for 2020

The Milwaukee Radio Amateurs’ Club and the Milwaukee Area Amateur Radio Society are sad to announce that we are cancelling our April 4th Interclub Swapfest. This is in accordance with Gov. Tony Evers’ order that bans gatherings of 10 or more people. We are currently in the process of refunding money to vendors or ticket holders who have already paid. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 

Dave Schank, KA9WXN

President, MRAC and MAARS


Due to the Covid-19 virus, I think it is best we don’t have the April
4th ARISS meeting at HRO. We can reevaluate what it’s like for the next
month, May and so on. I don’t want anyone to get sick and I think this
is the best way we can go along with all the other closings going
around. Please be safe out there, keep washing your hands and try to
avoid touching your face. I know you all know this but this is just a
reminder. Please don’t take offense by this reminder. I always used to
implement this when we would go deer hunting, to remind everyone to make sure their safety is on. We would always randomly ask each other if our safety was on. I’m just trying to do the same with this terrible illness that’s spreading. If you can remember anyone else that attends the meeting, please forward this to them
Thanks for your understanding,
