Illinois Repeater Association

2019 Annual Meeting Information

The annual meeting of the Illinois Repeater Association will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2019.  Note that this is the same location as last year’s (2018) Annual IRA Meeting.


Windsor Road Christian Church

2501 Windsor Rd.

Champaign, IL 61822

(217) 359-2122

IRA Delegate check-ins and any dues payments will start at 9:00 AM, with the meeting starting at 10:00 AM sharp. When dues are paid in advance the check-in process is quicker and eliminates much of the delay. As in the past we anticipate the meeting to conclude around 1:00 PM.

An IRA "Membership Information" form on file listing the delegates (max of two) and signed by the president and/or trustee and showing paid up dues for 2019 are all that are needed to vote at the meeting.

Every vote is important so that your association can effectively represent you in the multi-faceted problems facing the repeater owners of the country and Illinois in particular. Therefore, if you cannot attend this meeting and have no delegate in mind, we suggest that you appoint one of the current officers or directors to be your delegate. If you later decide to  attend  the meeting the presence of the trustee and/or president suspends any previous delegate appointment and/or written proxy

If you have any questions, concerns or would like to have a subject placed on the agenda please contact the Secretary/Treasurer at the address below or the President, Greg Buchwald.

Due to low membership numbers, we were unable afford our past conference and hotel accommodations in Bloomington.  We were forced to find an alternate location that would host our meeting at a significantly lower cost.  Many thanks go to the Twin City Amateur Radio Club, who is hosting the meeting and providing refreshments, setup and clean-up, and to the Windsor Road Christian Church for providing the facilities to us.

Windsor Road Christian Church.  The church is about 2 miles northeast of the Curtis Rd. exit on I-57.  Curtis Rd. is about 3-1/2 miles S. of the I-72 interchange on I-57.



Easiest way to get there from I-57 is to take Curtis Road exit (next exit south of I-72 interchange, 3 1/2 miles or so). Go east 1/2 mile, turn left (north) at next light, Duncan, go 1 mile north to next light at Windsor, turn right (east) 1/2 mile to church on right (south side of street.) at 2501 Windsor.  We plan to have a sign on Windsor.  GPS coordinates are N 40 degrees, 05 minutes, 00 seconds, W -88 degrees, 17 minutes, 17 seconds.
