WEEKLY 2-METER BARC NET

Beginning this Sunday (March 29, 2020), BARC will operate a weekly net at 7 pm every Sunday. We will use BARC’s K1PBO 2-meter repeater at 146.955, - shift, CTCSS of 88.5.
 
The net will be open to all BARC members as well as anyone else who wishes to check in.
 
Why weekly? Because we are in a situation that requires social distancing. Many of our members may not have a ready means to stay in touch with the Club or its members as a group. A weekly net will provide members that social contact.
