MRAC 106th Anniversary

The Milwaukee Radio Amateurs’ Club, recognized by the ARRL as its oldest affiliated amateur radio club (1919), will be celebrating its 106th anniversary of providing continuous operation and service to local amateur radio operators. Established in 1917, and the third oldest amateur radio club in the USA, thousands of Milwaukee area amateur radio operators have joined the club for social engagement, activities and events, and emergency and public service communications. The hallmark of this club is its members who nurture and support growth in amateur radio, further the experimental nature of the hobby, and aid each other in the development of fixed and portable amateur radio stations through knowledge-sharing and camaraderie.
