FROM  THE  CORN  FIELDS  OF
SHERIDAN, INDIANA

~~~ EN60vb ~~~

 

We have not competed since Sept. 2004 in VHF Contest do to several reasons starting with the loss of our antennas on the 110' tower do to a ice store damage in the winter of 2004 and then the selling of this property.  We hope in the near future to develop a new location and start joining in again with all the fun of VHF Contesting !!

 


 
 

 

 

 

 

While sitting around our Flea Market spaces at the Dayton Hamvention in April 1997, we decided to get back into the competition of VHF contesting.  In just 6 weeks we put together our first contest effort and have continue to improve on our operation ever since.

 

So the following pages of this web site are dedicated to the Indianapolis Carmel Experimenters "ICE" VHF Contesting Operation.  We operate both June and September VHF QSO Parties from our contest site about 30 miles north of downtown Indianapolis, IN in Hamilton County located in Central Indiana.  Our contest team operates out of a 50' x 70' pole barn located on a 5 acre residence with a ground elevation of just under 1000 feet.  The building has a concreted floor and we have wired it with separate 220V./50A. AC power circuits for each operating position.  Five towers & antenna arrays used for contesting are erected and taken down every June and September just for the contest.  Only one 110' free-standing tower is at the location.  Some of the RF equipment used at this contest operation was used in the early & mid 80's at the W8VP VHF contest site in Ohio.
