B.A.R.S. NEWS BRIEF

        

  2-Meter Net Every Tuesday at 7:00pm  

On the B.A.R.S. 146.70 MHz Repeater

 

A successful field day doesn't just happen. It requires a lot of effort and sacrifice from many members of the amateur radio community - not just locally, but nationally as well. You can't make contacts if other stations don't get on the air. Our group excelled this year because of the efforts of many, but in particular those that brought their personal equipment out for others to use. Kudos to Glenn KE4KY (complete CW station and antennas), Jim WA4VOC (satellite station and antennas), Dustin KM4UNY (HF rig for SSB), Bruce KD4ULD (a headset mike for the SSB station just for field day), Matt KY4M (the trailer to set up for the GOTA station) and Ed KC0IEB (the grills and his cooking skills). And thanks to the many hams that came out and spent some butt in chair time to make contacts and to help set-up. Our club should place well in the 2F category this year. Without their help we would not have been anywhere near as successful.

WHERE WE MEET

Regular monthly meetings are at Becknell Hall (pictured right), also known as the Pioneer Village City Hall, located at 4700 Summitt Drive. We meet the third Friday of each month at 7:00 PM, except when special events are scheduled, such as our annual picnic and Christmas party. These events and times will be posted and take the place of our regular meetings.
 

Directions: From the Gene Snyder (I-265), take Preston Highway (Hwy 61) south to Bullitt County. Follow Preston to the traffic light before the 84 Lumber. There is a sign indicating the Pioneer Village City Hall to the right. Turn right, this is Summitt Drive. Follow Summitt until you see Mini's U-Stuff-It Self Storage on the left. Becknell Hall is immediately afterwards on your left.
