Our club started in 1972 by meeting in a mobile office trailer on the City Garage grounds.As the club grew we moved to the Senior Citizens Center. The clubs continued growth had us seek out another larger site. We ended up in the nearby city of Oak Creek where we still meet today. All meetings, auctions, etc. are held at the same site.
The club sought and obtained ARRL affiliation early on. For many years obtaining 100% affiliation status! Most members today are also ARRL members. We have also received our 25 year certificate from ARRL.
