Foothills Amateur Radio Society


FARS is an amateur radio organization for the southern San Francisco Peninsula area in California serving residents of Los Altos, Palo Alto, Mountain View, and other nearby communities. Our regular monthly meetings are held on the fourth Friday of the month at Covington School in Los Altos.

The FARS edition of ARRL Field Day was on on June 25 and June 26. Due to safety concerns with the ongoing, but declinging, COVID-19 pandemic we operated field day as individuals and small groups. We could not accept visitors this year, but plan to do so again in 2022. We encouraged FARS members and all amateur radio operators to participate in field day as best they can and feel safe to do.

FARS participants are encouraged to report their Field Day results to the ARRL and submit your results towards the “K6YA - Foothills Amateur Radio Society” cumulative score.

The August 27 FARS Membership meeting is an on-line meeting.

Our meetings are open to all.
