NEW VENUE AND DAY!
St Barnabas Church Hall
Welcome to the Bath and District Amateur Radio Club (BADARC) held on the 4th Wednesday of each 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 five 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 hall is in the church.
Please park against the wall on the church side and not against the rectory side as this is a shared carpark and we don't want to fall out with our neighbours.
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)
******* Temporary Closure during COVID-19 Outbreak *******
There will be no physical meetings of the BADARC club until further notice. In the mean time we are proposing to meet up on the air at the normal meeting time of 19:30 on alternate Wednesdays on 145.250MHz FM. The next meeting is on Wednesday November 4th 2020.
It has been proposed that we adopt this as a club frequency and members or anyone else interested may wish to monitor it.
For the foreseeable future we are meeting up on 2 metres FM. The plan is to determine who can hear whom and try to build a little network.
