Monthly Ham Breakfast will be July 27 at Steak n' Shake on Pipestone Rd. just north of I-94 Exit 29 at 8:30 am. Come for the food or just to enjoy the company. All are welcome.

Our Annual Picnic will be on August 13 just south of Bridgman at the Lake Township Park. We have the Lake Pavilion again this year. Enter the park at the north driveway, turn left at the stop sign and follow the road to the lake pavilion. Look for lots of vehicles with ham antennas. Arrival time is 6-6:30 pm. Bring a dish to share and your own table service. BARA will provide the meat from the grill and soft drinks. After dinner there will be at least one on-foot fox hunt so come prepared with the appropriate VHF fox hunt gear. Hope to see everyone there on August 13 (the second Thursday in August).

Status of 146.220/146.820 Repeater System: Work on the site is on-going. At this time the repeater is functioning but with poor receiver sensitivity. Thanks for your patience while we get things straightened out and working again.
