This grant will ensure that Baraga County Repeater Association can pursue our goals in enhancing the communication gaps that exist in the Western Upper Peninsula, and to provide additional and or back-up communications during power outages or any other regional emergencies.

President Keith Almli said “Thank you to Wal-Mart of Houghton, MI for providing this grant, the money will be used to purchase a new repeater.”

Letters of thanks are encouraged to be sent to news outlets on behalf of BCRA.
