Welcome to W7VW Klamath Basin Amateur Radio Association

KBARA normally meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 PM. Due to the effects of the COVID-19 virus, meetings are now being held via the Zoom videoconferencing meeting system. You can download the Zoom app from your device’s App Store, or from the Zoom website. Club members will be provided meeting access information via email. If you are not yet a member and would like to join us, please send us an email requesting access!

In addition, every Monday at 11am, assuming they are open to customers, you are invited to join our members for lunch at the Abby’s Pizza at 1919 Austin Street in Klamath Falls.

Are you new to amateur radio? All new Hams get the first year of Club Dues Free! Normal club dues are $20 per year, due in January.

Would you like to learn about amateur radio by participating in an online class to study for your license? One of our local club members regularly conducts classes for both Technician and General licenses! More information is available on his website.

The club hosts a discussion board on Groups.IO https://groups.io/g/k-bar-a the group is open to members and anyone interested in becoming a member. This is the best place for up to date information. When you subscribe to the feed, you will receive an emain when an announcement goes out for meeting reminders and events.

Our weekly radio NET is on our Hamaker repeater, 146.850 MHz – 118.8, at 1900 hrs every Wednesday.

Several members are experimenting  with  JS8Call using the group call @KBARA, mostly on 40 meters at  7.078 MHz.
Join us if you can! Callsigns you are likely to see include KK6GXG, N2RSN, N7DHW, & W6OEM.
