This month's Ham Breakfast will be August 29 at Country Kitchen 2487 M-139, Benton Harbor, just north of I-94 Exit 28 at 8:30 am. Anyone interested in Ham Radio is welcome to join us.
The next BARA Club Meeting is September 17, 7:30 pm at the Stevensville UMC. At this meeting we will hold the annual election of Board members. We encourage and welcome anyone who wants to serve on the Board. Please contact any Board member to express your interest.
During the September meeting we also discuss plans and preparation for the Apple Cider Century, which is on September 27 this year. We will need lots of operators to help man the SAG stops and remote communications sites. It's likely that we will be using a UHF repeater this year. If you don't have a UHF or dual band radio one can be provided. Please plan on helping if you can. This is the most important public service event BARA does each year. Come to the September meeting to find out more.
Status of 146.220/146.820 Repeater System: Progress is being made on determining the problem with the repeater system. At this time the repeater is not operational, but may be soon. Thanks for your patience while we get things straightened out and working again.
