Beginning in November, the Monthly Newsletter will be merged into the current Weekly Updates. The Weekly Update will continue to be sent to all MailChimp subscribers and will be posted in the BRARA BLOG under the CATEGORY of Weekly Updates. Why is this happening? Time, there is not enough of it and the Newsletter is a duplication of the Weekly Update. Those items that are on the Monthly Newsletter missing from the Weekly Update will be rolled into the Weekly Updates such as Silent Keys, New Members, and Census Statistics. This has already begun and you may access the Weekly Updates by viewing our BLOG CLICK HERE

The next key step to operate a transceiver at the shack from a remote device (CLICK HERE FMI) is to implement a solid microwave IP signal from the repeater site to the shack (see above request for Tower Climbers). Once that is done, we can begin testing the process. Contact John.C N1QFH with questions.

BRARA is looking for a few Members of BRARA to consider becoming trained in WordPress and supporting the needs of the organization.
Scope of Training
To ensure the safety of our members, we the full BRARA Board have decided to postpone our opening plans until the pandemic stabilizes in the state of Florida. We all feel very strongly that our club must not in any way, however small, add to the risk of spreading the virus. We will revisit and resume our plans as soon as we are confident that it is safe to do so.
