All of the K9BAR repeaters are OPEN with emergency power if needed.  All licensed Amateur Radio Operators are welcome on these repeaters and are encouraged to use them.  We ask that you please be courteous, respectful, and follow good operating procedures while using the repeaters. We have a zero tolerance policy for abuse and misconduct. 

If you have not had the pleasure of using our linked repeater system then you are missing experiencing its wide area of coverage. Stop by for a QSO with a BARS member or bring a friend along and try out the machines. These repeaters are open to all licensed Amateur Radio Operators!

Please remember to ID with your callsign when checking if you can get into the repeater from your location. There has been a lot of ker-chunking of the machines recently. Using your callsign and a statement that you are testing, will help repeater committee members to know that a valid transmission was accessing the repeater and that the signal was not harmful interference or an intermod related issue. Your help would be greatly appreciated!  Also, if using the UHF P25 System, please look at your signal meter before transmitting, there may be a digital QSO in progress.

Please use the repeaters and tell us what you think! We would like to hear from you! Optionally you may drop us a note on our Facebook page and let us know!

BARS is very appreciative for the Village of Bolingbrook's continued support with the 147.330 and 443.525 repeaters!  

  

BARS is one of the best radio clubs in the Chicagoland area. Visit us on our repeater system for a QSO or join us for a club meeting / event and get to know BARS!
