Biography

The Hoosier Hills Ham Club was founded in June of 1955 with the purpose of promoting good fellowship, and better operating techniques, among amateur radio station operators. Our first club officers were Frank Carroll, Frank Chase, Jane Hartley, and Wm. Jenkins. Our callsign, W9QYQ, was Frank Carroll's call and was granted to us by the FCC after his passing.

W9GUS is our special event and contest callsign that is used to honor Virgil I "Gus" Grissom a native of Lawrence County Indiana, who died along with fellow astronauts Ed White and Roger Chaffee in the tragic Apollo 1 pre-launch test accident on January 27, 1967. We use this vanity call for the Gus Grissom Day Special Event station, Field Day, and other contests and on air activities that we enter as a club.

Equipment

Our repeaters are 146.73 MHz (south), and 145.31 MHz (north) both are negative offset with a PL of 107.2. Our 70 centimeter repeater is at 444.05 MHz plus offset also with a 107.2 PL. All of the repeaters are using the callsign W9QYQ.
