Welcome to our home page

The BARG Hamvention  2023 is now done, a great time had by all, click here to see the details.



The BARG holds monthly meetings. These  alternate from Friday evenings to Saturday to cater for the different commitments of members and other interested people.

The Friday meetings are usually  held on the last Friday of the month, starting at 7.30pm.

The Saturday meetings are usually held on the last Saturday of the month, starting at 11:00AM and are usually followed by an opportunity for a chin wag over a couple of Snags 'n Sauce in bread.

If you arrive early you will  find the doors open about 30 minutes earlier.

Check the calendar for details.

We obviously prefer face to face meetings, however where circumstances dictate we hold meetings ONLINE via  Webex. Details are emailed prior to the meeting. Guests are still welcome. Contact us to get the meeting details.

All members new and old are quite welcome to come out and join us. We are located at the Ballarat Airport. BARG runs a couple of radio nets on a weekly basis. Everyone is quite welcome to join in our radio nets. So if you have 30 mins to spare, please join in and say hi to a great bunch of people who will make you very welcome.
