OARS, the Olympia Amateur Radio Society, is an ARRL special services club dedicated to promoting and supporting Amateur Radio in the Olympia Washington area as well as all of Thurston County.

Until further notice the OARS weekly schedule will be the following:
Tuesdays -- Zoom 216-944-109, starts at 7:30 pm with talk on repeaters (be sure to mute your Zoom input).
Monthly Meeting every 3rd Wednesday -- Zoom 435-905-935 Password 147360, starts at 7:00 pm but no talk on the repeaters.

Testing will happen second Wednesday each month at the Alpine Hills Community Park at the intersection of Westhill Dr SW and Northill Dr SW. Remember you need a federal registration number available for free on the FCC website. Also remember to dress for the weather since we are in an open picnic shelter.
