Unless indicated otherwise, club meetings take place each month at 7:00PM on the first Friday of the month. Everyone is invited, member or not. Meet local hams whose call signs you've been hearing on the air and wondering who they are, find out what the upcoming area ham radio activities are, and how you can help and get involved.

NOTE the change of location: 2019 BARC meetings will take place in Room #115 (Council Chambers) of the Showers Building, 401 N. Morton Street, in downtown Bloomington. Use the employee lot at the South end of the building for parking. Enter the sliding doors into the City Hall. Parking becomes available after 5:30pm.


We usually meet on the first Friday of each month, although we do occasionally change these dates or location to accommodate weather or other scheduling conflicts. Changes are shown in red in the meeting schedule below.

[Please contact Tom Henderson (w9yw at arrl.net) if you are interested in making a presentation at a BARC meeting. If you are a first time presenter, we will gladly help you prepare.]
