About BRARC

The Border Ranges Amateur Radio Club Incorporated NSW, was formed to support the interest of Amateur Radio throughout Northern New South Wales and Southern Queensland high country.  We operate three Amateur 2m repeaters, 70cm links.  We have been structured this way to ensure the best access to radio sites and to support radio communications throughout the region.

Our clubhouse is located at Eudardo Verri Park, on Wallangarra Road in Stanthorpe, Queensland. It is the main site for all meetings and general club activities.
