~ The Friendly One ~
We encourage the new, as well as the seasoned Amateur Radio operator to make use of our repeater system. The Milwaukee Repeater is an open repeater, and newcomers are welcome. Stop by and visit us while in the greater Milwaukee area.
Our nickname is "The Friendly One" because we try very hard to make the 146.91 a great place for hams to meet their friends and to make new ones.
MARK THE DATE for the MRC 91 PICNIC
Sunday September 8th is the Date.
At Root River Parkway South Area #2 inside Whitnall Park
Set up 10AM..Food starts at Noon. Please bring a dish to pass. Club provides meat, buns and bottled water. Check out "events" on our web site for exact location..My opinion on the easiest way to get to the picnic is to enter from Grange Avenue... take 78th street south of Grange and we are the first picnic area on the west side (right) side of the road..We will have it marked with a MRC91 Banner.. We have the area to ourselves and a sheltered area w restrooms. Same location as last year. We plan to have 2 meter and an HF Station!! Dont miss this excellent event!!
We will remind you again as the day approaches.. By the way, you do not have to be a 91 Member to attend..Just Ham Friendly please..

ATTENTION ANYONE INTERESTED IN OBTAINING A TECHNICIAN CLASS AMATEUR RADIO LICENSE
FCC now requires new applicants to register in CORES
The FCC recently announced that all new license candidates for an amateur radio license must register in CORES prior to taking an amateur radio exam. This process will generate an FCC Registration Number (FRN) to be used in place of a Social Security number on Form 605. The FCC produced a video about this process, which you can view here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7a4doKEPN5m.
We strongly encourage you to register if you have not done so. Eventually the FCC will no longer accept Social Security numbers on Form 605. To register, go HERE. [Link to https://apps.fcc.gov/cores/userLogin.do] Any questions, contact the FCC using the phone number or email address posted on the CORES page.
The MRAC Volunteer Examiner Coordinator will not have the capabilities for candidates to register on CORES at a testing session. If you have not registered and if you do no have an FRN, you will NOT be able to take an examination!
