The Bath and District Amateur Radio Club. 

                Bath and District Amateur Radio Club




Welcome to the Bath and District Amateur Radio Club (BADARC) held on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 19.30hrs.

Our new venue from January 2018 is St. Barnabas Church Hall in Temple Cloud. The photo above shows the hall seen from the car park looking back towards the entrance on Temple Inn Lane.

From the A37 in Temple Cloud turn into Temple Inn lane adjacent to the newly refurbished Temple Inn pub. In just ten metres turn right off Temple Inn Lane into an alley and pass over an old cattle grid. Bear right as you continue approximately 100 metres along the alley passing the telephone exchange with its chain link fence on your left and the old courthouse and church on your right until you reach the car park.

The Bath amateur radio club has been running on and off for many years, within that time, locations have changed and clubs have closed,over the last couple of years many local hams have discussed the possibility of starting a new radio club and at the same time welcoming  members from further afield.So as of the 25th of April 2013 the Bath and District Amateur Radio Club was formed.(BADARC)

*******  Bath Repeaters Under Threat   *******

The Bath 70cms FM voice repeater GB3UB, the TV repeater GB3UT and the APRS repeater MB7UB are all under serious threat. The Estates department at the University of Bath want them removed from the site by January 15 2018.

Discussions are underway to try and re-locate them elsewhere on the University campus. In case these are unsuccessful, if anyone knows of a location close to the University where the repeaters could be re-sited (even temporarily) please can they contact me via the "Contact us" page on this website as soon as possible.

GB3UB has been operational since 1975, GB3UT and MB7UB not quite so long but if the NoVs are surrendered it is extremely unlikely they will be re-issued even if a site is subsequently found so it is vital to keep them operational if they are to continue.

Last meeting:

In December we had an informal gathering with a buffet and a showing of TXfactor.

We had our first attempt at a raffle which went quite well. There weren't many prizes but what we had were quite nice. Hopefully we'll have a few more next time (hint hint!).
