BARA is a general interest amateur radio club located in Bergen County, New Jersey. Club meetings are held at the Senior Center in Washington Township 350 Hudson St. Zip 07676 The first Sunday of the Month. Guests and prospective members are always welcome. Meetings start at 7:30 pm. We also publish an eight-page newsletter to keep members who cannot attend meetings up-to-date. If you would like further information about BARA, E-mail us at: info@bara.org

If you can't attend meetings you can still participate by joining one of our two weekly nets. The 2-meter net convenes every Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. on the W2AKR repeater (146.79) while the 10-meter net meets Monday night at 9:00 p.m. on 28.375MHz.

As a Special Service Club BARA has hosted several division conventions and most recently served as the QSL manager for the space shuttle mission STS-79.

We provide members with an outgoing QSL bureau headed by Warren Hager K2UFM. Each month Warren sends several pounds of cards to the ARRL for distribution.

Our Volunteer Examiner (VE) program is one of the oldest on the East Coast. e-mail to ham-exam@bara.org for further information.

Every Tuesday is "construction night". Some projects recently completed by BARA members include the automatic antenna tuner featured in the January 1997 issue of QST, the NorCal 40A QRP transceiver, a DSP audio filter and several Downeast Microwave transverters. We meet at the Westwood High School in Washington Township. If you are interested in electronics projects or just enjoy the smell of molten solder you can join the fun at 7:00 p.m. in room 118.

Our contest participation continues to grow along with our scores. For the past three years the BARA Weak Signal Group headed by Tony.K2AMI has been a multi-station multi-operator entry in the September and January ARRL VHF contests where BARA and individual members have scored among the leaders.

Field Day is always a highlight on the BARA calendar. As in the VHF contests we operated "multi-multi" and we always operate fully independent of commercial power.

Gordon Beatty, W2TTT maintains a library of videos on technical and operating topics. These videos are available for loan to club members.

The BARA semiannual hamfests in May and September are well-known throughout the Northeast as well as our annual auction every March.

So there you have it. At BARA you will find QRP enthusiasts, antenna specialists, key collectors, digital mode gurus and more. Our members have had articles published in QST and the "ARRL Antenna Compendium". Whatever your question is, technical or operating, at a BARA meeting you'll generally find several experienced hams ready to field it.
