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.

We are in the process of adding AllStar Link nodes to the 146.955 K1PBO repeater.  This will be in testing along with several other changes this fall and hopefully in service around the first of the year.

This will allow linking to any other AllStar node and a DMR and EchoLink Bridge This will allow for increased connectivity of the repeater.
