Welcome to TARA


The Torrance Amateur Radio Association provides emergency communications during a major communications outage.

With licensed amateur radio operators stationed throughout the community, TARA ensures vital information is shared among first responders. Weekly nets are held at 7:00pm each Monday. These are open nets; all amateurs are welcome.

Typically 200 hours are volunteered each month by TARA members as a group in services to the City and County. Communications are also provided for the Torrance Armed Forces Day Parade, and various events throughout the South Bay. New members are always welcome. If you are an amateur radio operator living or working in Torrance, we need your help.
