Our Mission:  Uniting Midwest contesters into a competitive group that supports and promotes activity in every aspect of ham radio contesting by serving as a resource to our fellow club members, promoting activity in all aspects of radio sport, and supporting the entire contest community through sponsorship of operating events and awards.

The Society of Midwest Contesters formed early in 1985 with the goal of uniting Midwest contesters into a competitive group and to further the idea of radiosporting in the Midwest.   From 51 charter members in the summer of 1985, we've steadily grown to a membership of over 200 contesters, mainly in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, and Wisconsin.   We launched our first major club effort in the 1985 November Sweepstakes, winning the Unlimited class.  We repeated in the 1986 SS, and were on our way.  We have claimed one or more club victories in ARRL contests every year since 1999, including a 3-peat as SS Unlimited champs in 2000, 2001, and 2002, as well as and many national and division VHF titles over the years.
