General Meetings

General meetings are open to all, club members and non-members alike. About the only prerequisite for attending a meeting is an interest in Amateur Radio!

Meetings are held on the Third Wednesday of every month, starting at 7:00 PM. The meetings are held at:

Kopernik Observatory & Science Center
698 Underwood Rd, Vestal, NY 13850

The typical flow of a general meeting is:
  • Introductions
  • Business Meeting
  • Refreshments
  • Program

During the Business Meeting Portions, we usually have the Secretary’s report on the previous general meeting; the Treasurer’s report; Committee reports; Old business; and New Business.

Board of Directors Meetings

The Officers of the club meet monthly, usually on the first Wednesday of the month, starting at 7:00 PM at the Office of Emergency Services, located on the west edge of the BCC Campus on Front St.

Board meetings are open to all BARA members and representatives of other amateur organizations. The board meeting is where much of the club’s ‘nitty gritty’ business is handled. The officers work on recommendations for our annual budget, form club committees, help committee leaders with problems, etc.

Club members with ideas, gripes, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, etc. are encouraged to attend a Board of Directors meeting and present their idea.

BRAT Net

The Binghamton Radio Amateur Technical Net (BRAT Net) meets on the 146.865 PL 146.2 repeater every Sunday evening at 8:00 PM. The purpose of the net is to ask and answer your technical questions, announce upcoming events, and chat with other club members. All hams within earshot are invited!
