A big thank you to BGE of Baltimore, MD for their Emergency Prepardness Grant to our organization. This $8,250 will be used to repair and update damaged infrastructure (antenna, tower, and radios) used for our public service and emergency prepardness activities. For example, Baltimore City and Baltimore County Skywarn are conducted on our VHF repeater system.
And another big thank you to those who attended this year's Annual BARC Auction, held on Sunday, January 19, 2014 at the BARC Clubhouse. The event was a success and we had a good time. This was highlighted by the announcement of the grant from BGE.
We look forward to seeing you again for our 2014 Greater Baltimore Hamboree on Saturday April 5, 2014 8:30 am-4:00 pm. (Maryland State Fairgrounds--Timonium, MD). The 2014 event includes the Maryland Emergency Preparedness Expo (more vendors, many new items of interest). The Hamboree includes free Amateur Radio License examinations!
