Barrie Amateur Radio Club Inc.

Welcome to the new website of the Barrie Amateur Radio Club, call sign VE3GCB. 

Our club meets monthly to exchange ideas, meet new friends and share exciting experiences.  We'd like to invite you to take a look through our website and attend our monthly club meetings.  You do not need to be a member to attend our club meetings. 


Next Club Meeting
Our next meeting will be September 16, 2014 starting at 7:00 PM in the cafeteria of Barrie North Collegiate.  Please note the adjusted date due to the start of the school year, which limits our access to the facility.

Our Guest Speaker will be Ron Hardman VE3RHF, RAC Director for Ontario South.  This is a great opportunity to ask your questions about RAC and get frank, honest answers.  This promises to be a spirited, lively discussion.

 All are welcome to attend the meeting, you do not need to be a club member.

 Come out and enjoy the fun of ham radio - bring a friend.

Bylaw Revisions

The Board of Directors has approved changes to the bylaws to simplify operations, promote involvement of members in the group and make club governance easier and will be seeking membership approval at the upcoming meeting.  In advance of the meeting, you can view the current and proposed bylaws.
