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.

FARS has resumed in-person membership meetings starting September 24, 2021. We have made this decision because COVID-19 conditions have improved in Santa Clara county to a point where we feel it is safe to do so with with COVID-19 precautions in effect. [update: Evidence of COVID-19 Vaccination is now required to attend a FARS in-person meeting.]

The December 17 FARS Membership meeting is scheduled as an in-person meeting at Covington School in Los Altos.

Our meetings are open to all.
