- To render a public service to governmental agencies during impending storms or severe weather.
- Assist in disaster relief operation and other community functions as required.
- To unite the amateur radio operators for the purpose of exerting effectively a combined influence upon matters concerning amateur radio operation.
- To promote good operating procedures and the exchange of technical information and assistance.
- To stimulate adherence to a code of ethics, both written and understood.
- To admonish members to comply with existing FCC rules and regulations.
- To be an influence to new amateur operators of the area in the operation of their station.
- To promote good will and fellowship among the members.
- To further the art of electronics and encourage prospective members to participate in the purposes of the Club.
The Association meets quarterly on the last Tuesday of the month at the Sturtevant Police Department, 2801 89th Street in Sturtevant, WI 53177.

We do our part to provide Amateur Radio repeater service in Southeastern Wisconsin. But we need your help to keep going. Lakeshore Repeater Association is a 501(c)(3) not for profit corporation, to make a tax deductible contribution is easy. You are also encouraged to join the Lakeshore Repeater Association or renew your membership for 2017. Without your help we may not be able to maintain both the UHF and VHF KR9RK Repeater systems.
