The Milwaukee Area Amateur Radio Society (MAARS) operates the largest coverage 2-meter repeater in Southeastern Wisconsin. Our goal is to expand and maintain our repeater system to the highest level possible. While this isn’t always easy, we have continued to maintain a system that hasn’t been duplicated in the area.

MAARS has always tried to be the leader in the area of technology. Our repeater was the first to have a remote receive site. We also were the first VHF repeater to install a remote base for both VHF and UHF. We are the backbone repeater for the National Weather Service reporting network for Southeastern Wisconsin.

Please feel free to visit us on the repeater and tell us what you think. We think you will find that you are among friends here on the 145.130 MHz (CTCSS 127.3) repeater.

This evening I found out that Rich Peters KB9KYS became a Silent Key on September 11th, 2020. Rich had been a long time member of ARES, MAARS, MRC91, and Navy MARS. You would often find Rich working ARES events or being a part of the swapfest crew for several clubs. He also served as a Lt Col in the Civil Air Patrol Milwaukee Composite Squadron #5, Mitchel Composite Squadron #9, and the Timmerman Composite Squadron. I will miss his great sense of humor and jolly personality.
