The Indianapolis Radio Club is a general interest ham radio group that was founded in 1914 and has met continuously since. Major activities the club supports are a bus to the Dayton Hamvention (May 20, 2017), Field Day (Jun 24-25, 2017), HillTop contest (Sep 16, 2017), the IRC 2m Four Grid Award (see the "Operating" section) and our annual Christmas Party (Dec 8, 2017).

"Our meetings are held at Ivy Tech Community College 2535 N. Capitol Ave. near downtown Indianapolis in the 4th floor ballroom in the NMC building (Ivy Tech Downtown Campus Map)at 7:30 PM on the second (2nd) Friday of each month except for July and August. Preceding the meeting, there is an informal social session that starts at 7:00 PM, where members and visitors can chat and exchange information over refreshments."

The Ivy Tech radio club meetings are held concurrently with the Indianapolis Radio Club meetings.

The Indianapolis Radio Club Station W9JP is co-located with the IVY Tech ARC Club Station W9IVY at the IVY Tech Community College Meridian Street Campus NMC building (Ivy Tech Downtown Campus Map). The IVY Tech ARC, W9IVY is the host and the combination of equipment from both clubs gives a nice station with capabilities from HF thru 1.2GHz including satellite. IRC members act as mentors for the IVY Tech ARC members and both clubs help maintain the station. The station is located on the second floor of the Tech Center Building room T226A and is available for use from 9AM to 9PM weekdays and Saturdays.  Tuesday from 3PM to 6PM is an IRC activity day for those interested in getting together at the club station. Talk in is on the 146.07/67 repeater. We would like to go over the operation of the station , logging onto the computers and the door codes to get into the station before you operate the station. You can park in the IVY Tech parking lots without a permit. Enter the Tech building by the side door on the back on the south corner. Contact Jim Rinehart, K9RU for information: See Pictures selection above for a view of the W9JP operating position. We can also use help working on the stations and the antennas.
