Info

Next Club Meeting is 7:00 p.m. Thursday August 5th, 2001.

Due to the long ARRL Field Day weekend and the upcoming July 4th weekend, we have decided to postpone the next BVRC meeting to August 5th and (hopefully) the resumption of in-person meetings.  We wish you a safe and enjoyable July 4th.

Next VE Test Session is 2:00 p.m. Saturday, July 10th, 2021.
Testing is BACK!!! (Masks required)


We meet monthly for informative and entertaining programs and speakers, old-fashioned ham fellowship, periodic public service projects, and a lot more.  Come join a very diverse group of hams from throughout the 4-States involved in almost every aspect of the hobby.  We’re the area’s largest, regionally focused, amateur radio club.  And we have a place for you!

We meet on the first Thursday of every month at the Highland Christian Church, 1500 Forest Hills Blvd, (Hwy 279 North) in Bella Vista at 7:00 p.m.
