At last night's Old Barney club meeting it was decided to make a change to our field day location for 2019.
WYRS has graciously offered their grounds to conduct field day at and we have decided to accept that offer. This will aide in increasing the ease of locating all the equipment we use during the day.
The new site is located at the end of Murphy Drive in West Creek.
If anyone should need more information please contact our field day chairman Bob Schenck, N2OO via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Monday, May 27, 2019, Murray Goldberg, KD2IN became a silent key. Murray was a former OBARC member and a good friend to OBARC over the years.

Rest in peace Murray!
On Wednesday, May 15, 2019 club member Joe LaGanga passed on after a short illness. Joe was involved in the club's VE Testing team and was present at many testing sessions.
Rest in peace Joe!
The Old Barney Amateur Radio Club is preparing for Field Day. This year will mark the 45th consecutive year that OBARC has participated in field day.
Field Day in the United States is the largest amateur radio event each year. It allows all amateur radio operators to prepare for emergency communication needs that may arise during any given number of potential situations.
Old Barney normally conducts its Field Day activities at the Wells Mills County Park on Wells Mills Road, Ocean Township in Ocean County, however a change of venue is being considered for this year and will be discussed at the next OBARC meeting to be held at the Pine Street community center in Manahawkin on Tuesday evening June 4th.
