Part show-and-tell, part maker fair, part operating event, the in-person RARS Gathering on the fourth Tuesday of each month is the place to be if you want to find out about the local ham community, meet other ham radio operators, see hands on demos of old and new ham radio equipment, get on the air, and exchange ideas in a fun forum.
Members and non-members are welcome....
The meeting starts at 7:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall, but we start setting up at 6:00 pm, and
you are welcome to bring your own ham radio equipment and projects to demonstrate, show off, or
just work on with other like-minded hams -- we have plenty of tables.
You might also find sources of coax, connectors, zip cord, Powerpoles®, and whatnot.
For more information about The Gathering, please contact Tadd Torborg KA2DEW.
The RARS Volunteer Examiner Team conducts license exams at The Gatherings in even-numbered months.
You do not need to be a RARS member to test with us.
Exams start promptly at 6:00 pm so applicants can attend The Gathering, afterwards.

for important information, including the exam requirements.

registration form on this page

After entering the restaurant and lobby, move to the left to the glass window enclosed private room.

We are seeing an unusually high number of bounces for emails from the rars-l email reflector to addresses in
the icloud.com and mac.com email domains.
Email addresses that result in an excessively high number of bounces get automatically unsubscribed from the reflector.
So, if you have an email address in either the icloud.com or mac.com email domains and all of a sudden you stop
receiving emails from the reflector, that might be why.
There is nothing we can do about this at our end. The problem is with the recipient's email service.
If you do get unsubscribed, you can try resubscribing with the same email address and see what happens.
Or, you can resubscribe with a different email address.
But if you do resubscribe with a different email address,
and this is important, be sure to change the email address in your
RARS member profile
to the same address.
If the email address in your RARS member profile doesn't match the email address you used to subscribe to rars-l,
you will get unsubcribed when we run "the purge" at the end of October to delete non-RARS members from the members-only email reflector.
