About Chapter 162
Chapter 162 serves members of the QCWA International who live in or near Southeast Wisconsin. Although we are based in Racine, we also have active members from Milwaukee and from Northern Illinois.

A highlight of our year is operating Field Day. The last several years we have operated with battery power at five watts.

Every year we solicit applications for the W9LDH Scholarship from licensed hams who are college students and live in the same county as at least one member or Chapter 162. The 2009 scholarship was awarded to Danielle Perse, KC9PAK. Danielle is enrolled at Mount Mary College in the Nursing program. Danielle holds a Technician Class Ham Ticket. We received no applications for the 2010 school year. Applications are due by May 31. Contact the Chapter Secretary/Treasurer for more details.

We also award the Olie Fox award to a local ham who has been licensed for at least twenty five years and who has demonstrated a commitment to community service. The winner in 2007 was Dan, KA9OIL.
