There are many fine benefits of being a member of Baltimore Amateur Radio club:
1. A club Facebook page for very current information.
2. Use of club equipment in the event yours is sent off for repair; you are never off the air!
3. E-mails sent to your e-mail account with the latest club announcements.
4. An informative club webpage with information about our repeater system, the BARC Father’s Day Hamfest and Marketplace, various activities (including meeting schedule), and club meeting minutes.
5. Of most importance, monthly meetings that foster camaraderie and fun.

BARC supports the Amateur Radio Service goal of providing quality pubic service, typically in the form of communications support to other public service and charitable organizations. Although from time to time we will coordinate our activities with the ARES and RACES Emergency Service organizations, it is our primary goal to service support requests with volunteers from within the membership of the BARC organization. All members are welcome and encouraged to support our public service activities. All of these benefits are available to you with your yearly membership patron of $20.00 and a commitment to make amateur radio fun and exciting for as many as you can.
