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
The August 27 FARS Membership meeting is an on-line meeting.
Our meetings are open to all.
Members and registered users may login to the web site to update their profile, sign up for (or renew) membership, or create/modify a public biography. Members may also search the membership roster to contact other members. Not a member, then register online, or sign-up at one of our meetings.
Membership in the Foothills Amateur Radio Society is open to any person interested in amateur radio who agrees to abide by the Bylaws and pay the annual dues. We sponsor educational meetings and radio activities. FARS is the sponsor for one of the Electronics Flea Markets during each year. Join our email list. Many FARS members are active in amateur emergency communications and civic support activities.
We have a number of useful articles covering Smith Charts, Antenna Impedance Models, Digital Keyboard Modes, etc.
