The Blue Ridge Amateur Radio Society has assisted amateur radio operators in the Upstate of South Carolina since 1959. We meet on the first Monday of every month at the Red Cross at 940 Grove Rd, Greenville, SC 29605 at 7pm.
We had a great turn out tonight at the BRARS Regular meeting, we had 12 guest and a total of 30. Our Program was a video on D-Star and thanks to Tommy, KV4TH for bringing his equipment, A D-Star Handhelp and a Raspberry Pi with the DV Mega.
Ifyou would like a copy of the video as it was shown, drop me an email and I’ll give you a link…. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for making this the best Club in the Upstate
There really is a Winter Field Day, and this year, it takes place over the January 30-31 weekend, sponsored by the Winter Field Day Association (WFDA). The annual event’s stated purpose is to encourage emergency operating preparedness in the winter, but it’s also a great opportunity to operate in the great outdoors. The WFDA describes itself as a dedicated group of Amateur Radio operators who believe that getting ready for emergency communication in a winter environment is just as important as the preparations and practice that take place at ARRL Field Day each June, all while taking some additional unique operational concerns into account. The WFDA points out that disasters are unpredictable, and its goal is to help enhance operators’ skills and prepare for all environmental conditions typically found in the US and Canada throughout the entire year.
Every day is a good day to send CW, but January 1 is reserved for Straight Key Night. Enjoy CW as it has been sent and enjoyed since the earliest days of Amateur Radio.
Objective: This 24-hour event is not a contest; rather it is a day dedicated to celebrating our CW heritage. Participants are encouraged to get on the air and simply make enjoyable, conversational CW QSOs. The use of straight keys or bugs to send CW is preferred. There are no points scored and all who participate are winners.

We Have a Net every night at 9pm on the 146.610 repeater (no tone).
This is the longest running net in the area, and if I’m not mistaking it
has the most check ins. So come on over to 146.610 and keep a good
thing going. Look forward to hearing you.
