Repeaters

BARC owns, operates and maintains five different repeaters, three VHF and two UHF repeaters. Two are located right in town in Burlington, VT, on UVM's Redstone campus. Another two are located on top of Mt. Mansfield. And, one VHF repeater is located at the Fleming School in Essex Junction. Both the city of Burlington and Mt. Mansfield are pictured above in our banner.

If you are not a member of our club but use our repeaters please consider making a donation to help us keep these machines on the air. Thank you.
