Los Banos ARC Welcomes You
The Los Banos Amateur Radio Club (LBARC) was founded to serve the local Los Banos community and surrounding Merced County in the event of a disaster. We also provide communication services for local events such as Fairs, Parades, Walkathon's and other activities.
LBARC has a very unique opportunity in Los Banos as community officials strongly support our efforts to develop an emergency services function. The emergency group in Atwater/Merced has folded with the demise of Castle Air Force Base and LBARC is the only active unit in the West Side of Merced county. We have also received preliminary interest from the Mariposa Sheriffs Department and the Merced County Sheriffs and Public Health Departments as well as Cal Fire.
You can find many of our members on the following repeaters:
Both the K6TJS and the AA6LB repeaters have the ability to be linked and have Echolink on them. These features may of maynot be active when you vist us on them.
