Tri-Town has a Club Station located in Hazel Crest, IL at "The Bunker". Click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.

The bunker is an old underground water tank that was converted to ESDA use, the walls and ceiling are 18" of  poured concrete!

We have use of an 80ft Rohn 45 Tower, a second 50ft Rohn 25 tower, and have equipment capability for 160m-70cm, including satellite!

During Field Day weekend we use the Bunker to obtain a "4F" catagory as an Emergency Command Center!
