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 will be scheduled based on the results of a survey to be emailed around Oct 10th. We plan to vote on club bylaws at the next meeting so it is important that everyone attend. The meeting will be held at the Kandiyohi County Rescue Squad building located at 213 SE Lakeland Dr in Willmar.
