K6YA - FARS Radio Station

K6YA Station Trustee: Phil Hawkins, KA6MZE

The FARS radio station is currently homeless since we had to move out of our Covington location. They tore down the building!

FARS has a very fine station capable of working the following:

  • An HF station for 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters (CW, SSB, RTTY, PSK31)
  • A VHF station for 2 meters.
  • A satellite station capable of working most of the OSCARS.
  • A packet station for 2 meter VHF.


QSLs for contacts using the FARS callsign are handled by Phil Hawkins KA6MZE. Return QSLs should be sent in care of (c/o) K6MA via the bureau.


FARS members in good standing are encouraged to operate the FARS radio station, after passing a brief training session on the equipment.
