March 2018 - Donation Request:
An issue is developing with regards to the funding and maintenance of the Brockville Amateur Radio Club's Ivy Lea repeater. 

The number of BARC members is currently not large enough to continue the entire $600 per year insurance and maintenance of the repeater. 

We are asking if those non-BARC members who use the repeater might consider a donation (in the $10 to $20 range) to assist with the carrying costs. 

Anyone who might consider this could forward a cheque made out to BARC as follows:

Brockville Amateur Radio Club
C/O Treasurer,
160 Dana Street,
Brockville, Ontario
K6V 6W9

Thank You!
