Attention all hams
Due to a change initiated by the Wisconsin Association of Repeaters, the two meter Lakeshore repeater has added a CTCSS. (CA) or carrier access is not allowed per the co-ordination body of Wisconsin, this is a mandate. Their website is http://www.wi-repeaters.org.
The new settings are: 147.270MHz+ tone127.3Hz.

The Wildhams was started by Dan (KA9OIL) here in Racine. We are a group of Ham radio operators (some not) who love motorcycles and the thrills that come with the great outdoors.
Root River Floods Racine Neighborhoods
Area hams are still on standby after the Root River floods Racine, WI neighborhoods. The Root River was at record 11.3 feet at 9:30 am Monday June 9th, 2008. The highest level ever recorded was 8.54 feet in 1961. Many basements were flooded and some residents were forced to evacuate. See pictures
UPDATE June 16, 2008 - Governor Jim Doyle announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has declared a state of disaster for Racine county, bringing the number of Wisconsin counties where individual assistance is available to seven. The designation frees up federal aid, including grants and low-interest loans.
W9UDU Station Activated for Disaster
"We were ready to go when activated. I couldn't be more proud of our volunteers. We will work with the responding agencies as long as they need us. We'll take what we've learned this time and use it to improve our response in the future." Voss said. More

Racine Megacycle Club and Lakeshore Repeater Association ARRL Sites of the Week
From August 12, 2006 Article:
This is going to be a one of a kind feature this week. Our usual site of the week will be a "two-fer" and at the end of the message will be a reminder of a very special special event.
For the site(s) of the week, we leave the sunny tropics from last week and travel about 2,100 NNW to the cities of Racine and Kenosha, Wisconsin to join Alexander Voss, N9RGX and members of the Racine Megacycle Club as well as Lakeshore Repeater Association as they say Hello on their links sections. This is yet another beautiful section of our country. I spent part of a summer in Wisconsin as a Boy Scout and returned there a couple of years back. The first listing as a photo of what would appear to be their QSL card and it shows a great water/skyline shot. Hope the fishing in that water is as good a I remember from many years ago on my Scouting adventures.

Hidden Transmitter (Fox) Hunt
The Racine Megacycle Club sponsored hidden transmitter (fox) hunt is held every four weeks on a Friday. (Every four weeks, not every fourth Friday. It is possible to have two hunts in one month.) The hunt starts at 7:30PM and is over by 9:00PM Hunters and the fox usually meet afterwards for pizza. The start point is set by the fox and the hunt area is anywhere in Racine or Kenosha counties east of highway 45. The frequency of the the transmitter will be given at the start of the hunt and will be in the 2 meter band. The fox will give the go-ahead to begin the hunt over the Lakeshore Repeater, KR9RK 147.270+ (No PL) and then QSY to the hunt frequency. Amateur Radio Operators and other interested parties are encouraged to participate. If you do not have your own hunt equipment it is usually possible to join one of the other teams in the hunt.
