The club was established in 1975 with the purpose of helping Big Bear hams and emergency personnel communicate in good times and times of crisis.
When requested, our club members respond by helping San Bernardino Fire and Police communications during times of disaster. Because Big Bear is in the middle of the San Bernardino forest, immediate help is critical during a fire or earthquake event.
Membership dues of $25/year help support the BBARC’s 2 meter and 440 MHz repeaters, allows us to experiment with the newest equipment for club use, and gives us the means to sponsor various club events.
