Next Meeting:

March 9th, 2021, at 7 PM on Zoom (same number and PW). Presentation by Will Jourdan AA4WJ of ICOM America on the new technology that is being developed at Icom.

Be there or be square! Thank you to Byron K4BMH for being the program chair and arranging the programs for the year.


Here are a listing of the planned member meeting coming up (usually the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM). BARC board meetings are the last Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM. Due to Covid-19, in person meetings have been temporarily moved to Zoom virtual meeting. This has had a positive effect as we are able to invite speakers that could otherwise not come to the meeting in person but can visit virtually. Invites with the Zoom Meeting Number and Password will be emailed to all members the day before the meeting. Our Vice President is in charge of setting up the meeting. We have to thank Lou Demko for the fine job he did in 2020. Some of the past meetings were recorded and are on Vimeo here. We look forward to Byron Highland to coordinate the 2021 meetings.
