Preceding the meeting, there is an informal social session that starts at 7:00 PM, where members and visitors can chat and exchange informations."

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 IFC 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.  Talk in is on the 146.28/88 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: k9ru@arrl.net

Indianapolis Radio Club Meetings and Events

September 13 ,2019 first fall meeting


The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Indiana Chapter, is organizing a bike ride to be held on August 17, 2019, and they've asked for amateur radio support.

The ride headquarters will be at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Lebanon, Indiana, and the ride covers parts of Boone, Hamilton, Clinton, and Tipton Counties.

The organizers have asked for amateur radio operators at six rest stops located in:

In addition to the rest stops, the organizers would like to have 4-5 "sweep" vehicles patrolling the routes to make sure nobody gets left behind. These sweepers should have APRS.
All operations, from either the rest stops or mobiles, will be conducted on various 2m and 70cm repeaters in the area.

Many of you have supported this ride in the past and hope you will volunteer again. If you haven't participated in MS bike rides in the past, give it a try! The riders are friendly and very appreciative of our support.

If you would like to volunteer or if you have questions, please contact: w9bu@rlburns.net
