Club Information

The Milwaukee Radio Amateurs’ Club, Inc. (MRAC) welcomes you to our website. The MRAC is one of the oldest, continuously operating amateur radio clubs in the world, having been incorporated in 1917 and affiliated 101 years with the ARRL (The national association for Amateur Radio) since 1919.

MRAC operates a 2M repeater system on 145.390 MHz (-600kHz offset, 127.3Hz CTCSS) for both FM and C4FM (Yaesu System Fusion). Weekly nets are held on Friday nights at 9:00 pm. We also host the first “Fusion” Net in the Milwaukee area on Saturday nights at 7:00 pm. Please click HERE for more information on our club nets.

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.
