W5IU will be the call sign used by the joint effort of the Lockheed Martin 
ARC and the Fort Worth Kilocycle Club at the Lockheed Martin Recreation Area 
in Fort Worth, TX.  Both of these clubs have club calls (W5SJZ and W5SH) 
but they have elected to use my call.  We plan to be on all of the birds and 
I'll see if I can get someone to bring a key.

73 - Keith, W5IU
