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 Thursday of the month at the Masonic Hall, Redfield Road, Midsomer Norton at 19.30hrs.

The link above points to the entrance. The walled car park is round the back of the hall.

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)

The Bath 70cms repeater has been working well apart from occasional interference that is suspected to originate on the University campus somewhere. It usually persists for half an hour or so and causes the repeater to continually send its "K" beeps. It is possible to talk over it if your signal is strong enough. Echolink access is working well too although some internet stations, particularly those using mobile phone apps have the send audio set much too high which overloads the sound card in the PC.

Last Month
DMR Digital Radio

Dave G3ZXX gave an interesting and informative talk on the development of various digital radio formats and their pros and cons. He concentrated mainly on DMR as he is the keeper of GB3JB on 2m and GB7JB, a DMR repeater on 70cms.
