Welcome to the website of the Barrie Amateur Radio Club.
Due to the evolving situation with COVID-19 in our new world, social distancing recommended by Canadian Health Officials is in effect.
Therefore, we must cancel all in-person Barrie ARC activities until further notice effective immediately. This includes meetings, classes, adhoc coffee meetings and any other in-person gatherings. Once we review the world situation, we will decide to cancel or extend the ban on club activities that require in-person participation.
Stay in touch, so to speak, and stay safe!
We are Amateur Radio Operators! Use radio!
