NoBARC is an organization of about 150 Amateur Radio Operators (“Hams”) centered in Berkshire County, Massachusetts. The club logo contains the emblem of Special Service Club, a designation bestowed by the ARRL on those clubs which provide a wide range of services to their members, to fellow hams, and to their communities. NoBARC has earned this designation for six consecutive years. NoBARC’s repeaters at 3500 ft have a typical range without obstruction of about 250/300 mi circle. Making this one of the widest coverage repeater in the Northeast.

NoBARC was created back in the 1960’s by a group of hams in Northern Berkshire County that got together every year to provide communications for the North Adams Fall Foliage parade. An event that we still do to this day, and what is probably our most enjoyable event.
