The next BARA Club Meeting is on July 21, 7:30 pm at our new meeting location (see below). The presentation for the July meeting will be on D-Star digital communications. Currently BARA has a fully functional D-Star repeater operating on 442.275 mHz. It is located at the home of KB8ZB so it has a limited range. Future plans are to relocate the repeater system to the Lakeland Hospital in St. Joseph. Come to the meeting to find out all the details and learn about this interesting way of communicating.

The July Breakfast is planned for July 30th at Country Kitchen, 2487 South M-139,
Benton Harbor at 8:30 am. Come one, come all!
