- We still need help for Ham Awareness Day on 9/19. We brainstormed
ideas for a tabletop display. N1IST will look into designing it; we are
looking for ideas what to put on it.
- Unless someone wants to run it, we won't have a BARC table at MIT
this month, since N1IST will be tied up and KA1TUZ can't run it all himself.
We will have a BARC table at Hoss Traders and the October MIT.
- BARC will hold a Tech class this fall, probably in October and/or
November. It will be held at the Salvation Army building. Stay tuned
for more info.
- BARC will be assisting WGBH with their telethon for one day, probably
in December (on TV, not on ham radio). This is a fun PR event, and includes
a tour of the WGBH studios and facilities.
- We still need help for the ice cream fest and the Jimmy Fund walk.
Contact Bob, WA1IDA, if you can help out.
- The current club treasury balance is $2481.
- We are still looking for responses to the "what can BARC do to improve
the club" question. Please send them to
email@example.com, the club PO box, or answer them on
the BARC web page.
- The BARC Emergency Response Team will be having a "pseudo-announced
emergency" scenario shortly, possibly in association with the Simulated
- Upcoming BARC Public Service events: The WGBH Ice Cream Fest (9/12
and 9/13, 1100-1600 each day) and the Jimmy Fund marathon walk on 9/27.
Ham Radio awareness day (9/19) and the Public Safety fair at the MEMA
