To BARK membership
It has been proposed that the Current dues payment process be changed to a fixed payment date. This date will be June first and will become effective on 6/1/2014.
Those with current paid dues will either be prorated or partial billed to get to the June date. All new members will be billed a partial bill to get to that date.
Those who are already paid beyond 6/1/2014 will receive a partial billing for the following year.
Members with currently past due accounts can contact Ken Wilson to determine the correct amount to bring you into this new billing system.
Thank you for your continued support of the Berryessa Amateur Radio "K"lub.

Packet BBS to be Added to the BARK Repeater Facility

At the October 19, 2013 BARK General Meeting, BARK member Joe DeAngelo, AG6QO, gave a presentation on the packet BBS that he is developing. By November 15, BARK repeater users should enjoy access to 2 nodes which will permit great communication with BBS stations allowing messages to be forwarded thoughout California. Joe is working closely with BARK members Ken, K6WLS and Bill, K6KN, to facilitate this very useful asset, vastly increasing the flexibility and usefulness of the BARK repeater facility. The BBS will also be a great attribute in facilitating emergency, radio-linked, digital communications. Thank you Joe.
