2017 MCRN PicnicSwapmeet

  One of our Midwest Classic Radio Net members has one of the biggest towers around with a ham shack in the tower. It is 231 feet tall including the antennas. It is a former AT&T relay tower located at LaPorte, IN. Danny  W9DWS made his tower site available for our MCRN get-together on September 9, 2017.
