The Blue Ridge Amateur Radio Society has been of service to the amateurs of Upstate South Carolina since 1959. The club is involved in many public service activities, operating activities, and emergency operations.
At the Monday 3 July Club meeting, those in attendance voted to change the date for the September BRARS Club meeting to Tuesday the 5th of September. We hope you, and all our membership, enjoy the final “summer holiday” with family and friends.

Just a quick reminder, the annual ARRL Field Day is THIS Saturday. If you haven’t signed up yet to work one of the stations, please do. If you would like more information about our location, you will find it here.
At the 5 June BRARS meeting the members in attendance chose the Ivy Acres RV Park site as the location for our 2017 Field Day operations. Here are the details:
201 Ivy Acres Dr
Piedmont, SC 29673
Our area will be located in the southeast corner of the property.
The property owner has requested that if you are driving to the Field Day site, that once there, you park for the term of our operations. He wants to avoid significant traffic across the grassy area to preserve the area and prevent erosion. The same applies to picnic-goer traffic.
At the Field Day site: Tent camping, RV and Camper “dry” camping with Porta-potty, electricity from generators, batteries, or solar panels, bring your own water.
On the property: Limited number of RV and Camper “full hook up” sites available at $35 / night…call Ivy Acres to book your space as soon as you can
Note: David Pearson (KJ4YQK) is offering a special Field Day incentive
He will donate a 2017 ARRL Field Day t-shirt to the first ten members who sign up for site setup and tear down
