The Border Ranges Amateur Radio Club, (BRARC) was incorporated in 2009, after formation earlier in the year. The club draws its members from the towns of Warwick, Stanthorpe and Tenterfield, and the wide surrounding areas in northern NSW and southern Queensland.
Our Clubhouse is in Stanthorpe, at Eduardo Verri Park, Wallangarra Road, which is the southern main road out of town, opposite Jardine Street. We are behind the pottery group. We lease this club house, from the Southern Downs Regional Council.

Club repeaters are at the following locations.
Acacia Plateau VK2RAP 147.275 MHz + 600 Tone 123 Hz
Stanthorpe VK4RMM 147.125 MHz + 600 Tone 123 Hz
Tenterfield VK2RMM 147.375 MHz + 600 Tone 123 Hz (Full Solar)
All repeaters are linked on 70 cm - talk to one and you talk to them all. IRLP and Echolink are both accessible from any repeater.
Both Acacia Plateau and Tenterfield have APRS repeaters to cover the New England Highway.


Meetings are held monthly, the first Saturday each month, at the Club Rooms. All meetings commence with a BBQ (BYO Food), starting at 12 noon, with any Guests warmly welcomed. Then the meeting, mostly Radio Chatter and up and coming Events, starts at 1:00 pm AEST. Any change to this routine is emailed to all the club, and posted to our web site,
Looking forward to meeting with you, and having a chat, at our club meeting.
