Welcome to the Wisconsin Amateur Radio Club Web Page
Our Story . . .

The Wisconsin Amateur Radio Club (WiARC) has been in existence for many years in the Germantown/Menomonee Falls area of Southeast Wisconsin. Formerly known as the Falls Radio Club, we have expanded our reach in recent years with our new name, new club call sign (W9CQ), and a renewed focus on the technical and historical aspects of Amateur Radio and Communications. We have broadened our horizons without losing our focus on providing emergency services to the Germantown Police Department
and Froedtert Community Memorial Hospital.

Meetings are monthly on the last Wednesday night of every Month, except for December when the meeting is a bit earlier in the month due to the holidays.

One important matter is the location of our club meetings. Our monthly meetings are held at the Germantown Police Department, Germantown, Wisconsin. The address is N112 w16877 Mequon Road. Due to security at the Police Department, a door bell is provided to gain entry. As you approach the facility, go to your right to access the proper part of the facility.

Monthly Meeting Time is 7:00 PM - Doors Open for Meet and Greet at 6:30 PM
