The Raleigh Amateur Radio Society asks that any person who thinks that they might have COVID 19, or other contagious diseases, refrain from attending any in-person RARS event until they are no longer contagious.
7:00 PM: General Social/Gathering.
7:30 PM: Business meeting and program.
Part show-and-tell, part maker fair, part operating event,
the RARS Gathering 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.
The RARS Volunteer Examiner Team conducts license exams at The Gatherings in even-numbered months.
Exams start promptly at 6:00 pm so applicants can attend The Gathering, afterwards.
Preregistration is preferred and may be done by emailing the RARS VE Team at WA4GIR@arrl.net.
Please see our License Classes and Exams page
for more information, including the exam requirements.
