What is BayCon?
BayCon is the annual meeting of the BayNet Amateur Radio Club in the San Francisco Bay Area. It's also our annual fund raiser.
BayNet provides a multi-site open repeater network covering the Bay Area from two high radio sites. The sites are linked full time providing wide area coverage on our conventional FM repeater system. We also host a DMR repeater and talkgroup, a Fusion repeater and room as well as a D-STAR repeater.
Bay-Net's primary served agency is the American Red Cross. We provide wide area emergency communications infrastructure in times of disaster and for various public service group events.
The equipment is bought and paid for by the generous donations from a few club members, however, our annual operating expenses are more than $2,000 to pay for radio site rental, insurance and maintenance. BayNet is open to all radio amateurs and we don't take dues. That means that BayCon is the one and only way we generate our operating funds. Please buy as many tickets to the drawing as you can to help fund our efforts. If you would like a tax deduction, you can also make a donation. BayNet is a 501(c)3 educational organization.
Thank you !

On the day of the event, we will livestream all the presentations on YouTube. You can watch for free.
