  • 2004 IRC Field Day opportunities....
    IRC Members invited to RCA ARC Field Day June 26-27:

    Members of the Indianapolis Radio Club are invited to join us for our FD operation.
    Our site is at the Bultman's Radio Ranch, 4823 W Edwards Ave. on the southwest
    side of Indy near the intersection of I-465 and Kentucky Ave. Click Hr for map

    We will start the setup around 9:30 AM Saturday. We urgently need 8 to 10 people
    for setup. And, we can always use a little extra for tear-down Sunday beginning at 1 PM.
    The Field Day operation starts at 1:00 PM local time Saturday and ends at 1:00 PM Sunday.

    We'll be operating in the one transmitter class. Our goal is to have one operator and
    one person logging to cover the 24 hour contest period. Our experience has shown
    we can always use more operators! Everyone is welcome and if nothing else stop by and
    see the setup (and have something eat!).

    We will have food and there will be a cookout Saturday evening. There is plenty of room
    to bring a sleeping bag and roll it out on the floor to sleep in the house (it's air conditioned).
    There is also room for tents if that's your hr for FD2004 Pics.

    Additionally : IRC members are invited to participate with the Multi-FD Site
    at Camp Atterbury IN. For more info goto Mid States Ham Club
