Join us for the Tehachapi Amateur Radio Associations monthly breakfast at Gracian’s Grill in Tehachapi. It’s a great opportunity to meet with friends and fellow “Ham” Radio operators from in and around the Tehachapi area. Good food, great people, and awesome conversations. Our monthly breakfast(s) have resumed and are held on the second (2nd) Saturday of every month at Gracian’s Grill at 8:30 am (PDT). While an RSVP is not required, we’d love to know how many people can make it so that we can prepare the staff. See you there and bring your appetite. 73’s!

Mission: To encourage newly-licensed operators (“Rookies”) in North America (including territories and possessions) to operate on the HF bands and experience competitive Amateur Radio operating. Experienced operators (“Non-Rookies”) are strongly encouraged to participate and help new operators – either on the air or in person.
Objective: Rookies exchange information with as many other stations as possible on the 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10 meter HF bands. Rookie entrants are encouraged to read “HF Contesting – Good Practices, Interpretations and Suggestions.”
For more information visit: ARRL – Rookie Roundup – RTTY Contest page.
Contest Objective: For North American amateurs to contact as many amateur stations in as many different locations as possible in North America on bands from 10-GHz through Light. Amateurs are encouraged to operate from more than one location during this event. See the detailed rules for restrictions.

Have you checked out the “Just Because Net” yet? We hold an informal net every Wednesday night at 7:00 pm PDT just because. Visit and spend time with us, “On-Air”, on the W6SLZ 2m repeater.
Join us for the TARA Just Because Net Wednesday Nights at 1900 PDT.
The Net is held on the Bear Mountain W6SLZ repeater 146.700- MHz 123 Hz (PL). This is an informal Net started after Covid-19 to help us stay in contact with our fellow area Hams. NET Control usually calls for 3 check-ins at a time to start a round-robin discussion with a suggested topic. (Net control may choose to change this up if they like). Check-ins may discuss this topic or are encouraged to change the subject if they wish.
Membership in TARA is not required to participate in the Net.
We have had some great technical discussions in the past covering many subjects;
– Alternative Power
– Virtual Expo
– BioEnno Batteries
– Go Kits
– Our favorite toy stores
– Ham Equipment For Sale
– Requests for Help
– Solutions to problems
If you have a question about a mode of operation, equipment, or anything amateur radio-related subject; chances are this group can help or point you in the right direction.
