The Traverse Bay Area Emergency Communications Radio Group or TBARG for short was created late in 2009 by amateur radio operators to fill the need of having an active Amature Radio Emergency Service – ARES, and Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Services (RACES) team in the Grand Traverse area.  Our primary sponsor and brother organization is the Cherryland Amateur Radio Club, with out which the TBARG ARES/RACES group would not be possible.
