Barbara Leiden, N1UI - SK 1/9/2016

It is with deep regret that I pass this message along. As some of you are aware Barbara Leiden N1UI passed early this morning as the results of a terrible accidental fall in her home. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rob, K1UI and his family. The officers and directors of BARC & I'm sure the entire membership share in the loss. We will pass along arrangement information when it becomes available.

Yaesu System Fusion Digital to be Installed on 146.955

Another mode option is coming to the 146.955, K1PBO repeater.  Yeasue's  "System Fusion" digital C4FM will be an option around late March if it ships as expected. 

This system will allow analog and digital (one at a time) to coexist  on the same pair.  So users with digital capability can utilize it and anayone without can use analog the analog operation will remain the same, and the digital does add some neat features.

ARRL Field Day 2015 - Logging

We will be using N3FJP's "Field Day Contest Log" software again this year.  Apparently our lock-up problems last year were related to the hardware running the software and not the software. (lets hope) So this year we will be rolling out the heavy hitter a Dell Poweredge1950 dual 3.0 GHz Xeon quad-core CPU, 1U server running Windows 8.1 Enterprise!  If it will not work on this we will be in the market for new software. 

2017 Field Day Results

BARC had 792 CW and 508 phone and 26 solar QSOs. Total points submitted were 5084

Thanks ro all who made our field day possible.
