PI-STAR ISSUE
There has been a potential issue with Pi-Star updates causing a looping of the system. An update has just been posted that addresses it. From your Pi-Star go to configuration, then expert and than click on update. Then click on upgrade. You should now be on 4.1.5. Then click on update again. At this point you should be up to date and hopefully no looping. Click on  Admin. The dashboard should now be at 20210621

BRARA 2021 Membership
We look forward to a full year of many projects even with COVID-19. Member tools are periodically undergoing updates.  The Shack is reopening for limited use starting June 5. See the link under Announcements.
 
Thank you for your support which is vital to our success.

How can you tell if you have not paid your 2021 dues? There are two ways.

1. No logon permitted if Admin Year was 2020 or earlier.

2. On home page see message "2021 dues payable by 2021-03-31."

In either case, to resolve this, please visit our Payment Gateway to Pay 2021 Dues.
