Perhaps the first licensed radio ham in the St. Cloud area was Robert "Bob" Witchen, W0SV, licensed about 1921 as 9SV. He was the chief engineer of radio station KFAM, the first commercial radio station in St. Cloud. Many "old timers" will recall that KFAM was originally called WFAM and later changed to KFAM. The Federal Communications Commission assigns the call letters after considering the wishes of the owner of the station in this case The Saint Cloud Daily Times. The first letter of the call in most cases was a W for stations east of the Mississippi River and a K for stations west of the Mississippi River. The FAM stood for the "family" station.

The St. Cloud Radio Club call is registered as W0SV in honor of Bob Witchen, first licensed ham in the area.

The St. Cloud Radio Club operates a repeaters W0SV on 147.015 Mhz.and 146.94 Mhz.
