Due to the recent noise and interfierence on the K9BAR Repeaters, which will exist until we get our New Antennas in place and functional.  BARS has arranged as an Emergency Backup for our Weekly Net and SKYWARN Net, to use if needed the Naperville EMA Repeater System:

Do you enjoy the BARS Nets?   

Have you ever considered becoming a NCO (Net Control Operator)?     

BARS is always looking to add members to our Net Committee.   Being a NCO takes only about 30 minutes once a month or every few weeks depending on your schedule.  It is a way to give back to BARS, and the community.  It's easy to do, we have Net Scripts you can read from and it's not only Fun - it's a way to get to know and remember the BARS Membership.  Besides, the more NCOs we have the better for everyone.  If you would like to join the Net Committee, and be a NCO, please contact Scott - KC9UTC, or any of the Net Committee members listed below.
