Willmar Area EAR

Welcome to Willmar Area Emergency Amateur Radio. This site is dedicated to amateur radio communications in Willmar, MN and the surrounding area including all of Kandiyohi County.


The next meeting is October 9th at 6:30pm. We plan to vote on club bylaws at this meeting so it is important that everyone attend. A presentation on the possibility of adding secondary recieve sites and digital modes to the repeaters is also planned. The meeting will be held at the Kandiyohi County Rescue Squad building located at 213 SE Lakeland Dr in Willmar.

A huge thank you to everyone who assisted with the MS bike event in July! The MS Bike crew was thankful to have local club members help with Net control and grateful for the use of the repeater.
