Bendigo Amateur Radio and Electronics Club Inc.
Monthly Meeting. BAREC Special Interest Groups - 12 months on and beyond.
BAREC launched our Special Interest Groups, or SIGS, in September 2021.
These groups provide forums where members can learn more about various amateur radio topics such as Microprocessors, Digital Modes, Field Operations and Morse Code.
The sessions are conducted via Zoom, on air, at the club rooms or in the field. These groups are an excellent forum for discussing issues and solving problems - from digital mode interface issues, building a SOTA antenna, or getting started with activations, there is sure to be someone that can help.
We have many experts in the club that specialise in various areas of amateur radio.
Do you have an idea for a Special Interest Group that you would like to coordinate?
Bring your ideas along on Friday evening, and if you cannot make it in person, please join us via Zoom.
The presentation commences at 7.30 pm, at BAREC Headquarters, Bendigo East Hall, 35 Lansell St. A gold coin donation would be appreciated, and a light supper will be provided.
For more information, contact Graeme on 0417 389 357.
The presentation will also be available via Zoom. Check your email for details
