Repeaters

BARC has three repeaters on two meters. Two are linked and have pretty wide area coverage. The third is a stand-alone repeater covering the local Barstow area. All three use the club callsign, WA6TST

The local repeater is on 146.97 (-600) and is located in the Barstow Heights area. It has good coverage around Barstow.

The two linked repeaters are used for weekly check-in nets for BARC and the Barstow Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). Nets are held at 7PM local time on Tuesdays, except the second Tuesday of the month. The second Tuesday of the month is the BARC club meeting night. Due to COVID-19 restrictions meetings are being held at 7:00PM Local time on the linked repeater system. After the restrictions are listed the new meeting place and details will be announced.

SR247 (Barstow Road) from Main Street to the ridge south of the Slash-X Ranch, including the off-highway vehicle area. There is also good coverage into the main areas of Fort Irwin.
