The Bullitt Amateur Radio Society (B.A.R.S.) is a diverse organization of amateur radio operators from around the Bullitt and Jefferson county areas in the state of Kentucky. B.A.R.S. is an ARRL (American Radio Relay League) Affiliated Club. We support ARES and RACES and have a partnership communications room at the Bullitt County American Red Cross to provide an emergency communications point between amateur radio operators throughout the state and the American Red Cross during times of disaster and other communications emergencies. The B.A.R.S. club repeater is used for the SKYWARN® Emergency Net during hazardous weather conditions.
