Well we won't be having so many IN PERSON meetings for a month or two.. Club Business meetings will be held over a conference call, and Club meetings will not be held in person (Facilities are closed) but we are trying to arrange a streaming meeting.. More info on that as it develops. We now have the NOON weekday Stir-Crazy net on the 146.94 repeater..
Last Saturday the breakfast folks ate breakfast at home and used the HF radio at 3907KHz (or 146.95 depending on conditions) to pretend they were all together like normal.
This does give us a great opportunity to work for the community in this time of emergency as well as a perfectly good excuse to USE YOUR RADIOS!..
I have heard word that we will be expanding LOCAL NETs to every day or every evening.. There is a lot of Worldwide HF activity as well..
Turn on your Ham Radios and stay informed.

Recognize BVARC SK's:
Help us recognize (memorialize) the BVARC hams that have passed away. Many of these SKs have ELMERED us and taught us so much in the past. BVARC has a special place for them on the WHO IS BVARC page. We don't get notices of everyone that dies, so if you know of anyone, please let us know email@example.com
