County Wide Repeater Project

BCARC in cooperation with Bonner County ARES/RACES and the Bonner County Dept. Emergency Management is in the process of acquiring equipment and funds for a project to set up amateur radio equipment in several communities in Bonner County. Our goal is to build a county wide amateur communications system to support the communities through out Bonner County in a natural disaster or other emergency situation and that can be accessed with low power radios, a.k.a a 5 watt handheld, from anywhere in the county.

We are looking for donations of funds, VHF/UHF repeaters, VHF/UHF radios, VHF/UHF antennas and coax to be used on this project.

BCARC is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization registered with the state of Idaho and the IRS as a public charity. Part or all of your donation may be tax deductible. Please speak to a tax professional for details on donations.

Please see the Repeaters page for details on the Bonner County linked repeater system.
