Chapter 36 - Northwest Indiana

~ Creaky Knees and Rusty Keys ~


Our Local Friends in Northwest Indiana
(or other very special contacts)

These are QSL card collections, photos, or other memories shared by members and friends. The idea is to tell us of the friends or events that helped shape your passion for amateur radio. This page goes together with the Members Page and also the History Page.

Dolores created (and narrated) this video back in 1994 titled, PCARC Friends & Memories which shares with us much history of the Porter County Amateur Radio Club and its members.
