During this time while most of us remain self-isolated, but key-workers and other essential workers continue to work, many with additional hours, BARC thought it would be good to hold an additional weekly Club Net each Sunday. It is hoped that this will allow members not able to join us on Wednesdays to keep in touch.
As this is in addition to our regular Wednesday Evening VHF Net, the Sunday Net will be held on the local GB3BN Local UHF Repeater. GB3BN’s coverage extends to a large area across our region and will allow those with low power hand helds or those beyond our simplex 145.375MHz Net to join in. GB3BN is also accessible via Echolink, enabling some of our Country Members to take part in the Net.
BARC would like to thank the repeater keeper Baz (Andrew Barrett G8DOR) for permission to use this fantastic local facility for our Sunday Club Net.
It will be good to hear as a many members as possible on this additional Net and if successful, is something that will hopefully become a regular event following the current isolation and social distancing restrictions.
