BARRA’s Technical Committee is comprised of members who work with and on our repeater equipment and facilities in which our equipment is housed. The Tech Committee meets the first Thursday of every month (with the exception of holidays or school closures that fall on meeting days) in the conference room (just inside the main door) of the BOCES Potter Road Career and Technical Center, 705 Potter Road, West Seneca, NY on the corner of Slade, Potter and Orchard Park Roads. Meetings begin at 7:00 PM and usually conclude with adjournment to a local restaurant for munchies. All BARRA members of all technical abilities are welcome to join the Technical Committee at any time.
SPECIAL NOTE: Summer meetings (July & August) of the Technical Committee are held at the Cole Road repeater site, not the school.
