Barstow Amateur Radio Club

We are a full service amateur radio club serving the Barstow, California, area.

We have two linked club repeaters that cover a wide area around Barstow. We also have a stand-alone repeater that covers the local Barstow area. See the BARC Repeater page for information.

The linked repeaters are 147.180 (+600kHz, PL 151.4) and 147.885 (-600kHz, PL 151.4). The local machine is 146.970 (-600kHz, no PL).

The BARC check-in net is held on the linked repeater system on Tuesdays at 7:00PM local time.

Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM local time, at the American Legion Hall, 2181 Armory.
