We’re a group of about seventy ordinary men and women who love amateur radio and enjoy doing things together that you will learn about as you explore this website. We’d love to have you join us—click on the Membership tab for more information. As we often say, Hope 2 CU soon and 73!

The Biggest and Best Swap of the North

Just under 300 old and new friends joined us for another great swap. Business was good at most of the sixty-five tables, and everyone seemed to have a good time. Best news of the swap? We now have seven new hams (Technicians), plus a new General and Extra, thanks to our VE team. We’re already planning for next year, so if you have any suggestions to make this swap better, send them to us via the email link on this page. And a big thank you to all the Wexaukee Amateur Radio Club volunteers who made this happen!

Stay in Touch

In addition to our monthly meetings, area nets, and our newsletter, we’re trying to do a better job of sharing all that’s happening with the WARC. Check out the changes on this website—we will be updating it at least monthly. Also, our YouTube channel (Wexaukee ARC) posts videos of our monthly meetings with occasional other video features. Finally, make it a point to regularly go to our Facebook page. As always, if you have suggestions for improving any of these resources, please email Lyn, WA8UPB.

Threatening weather? We’re ready, thanks to National Weather Service Warning Coordination Meteorologist Pat Bak who conducted a Skywarn training session for a whopping thirty-eight of us (including four visitors from the community) at Thursday’s club meeting. Too much information to share here, but the bottom line is that the NWS depends heavily on spotters like us, and if you’re not sure if what you see in the skies is actually dangerous, report it anyway. Don’t report lightning—just high winds, hail, funnels, and other rotating cloud activity. The number to call is 1.800.MI.STORM—go to www.weather.gov/gaylord for more information about identifying and reporting severe weather.
