Welcome to the Tippecanoe Amateur Radio Association

The Tippecanoe Amateur Radio Association was formed in February of 1951 to serve the community through the use of amateur radio. We offer education and support to new and established members, as well as providing vital communications to served agencies during times of disaster.

We currently offer our members:

  • Monthly Presentations on Amateur Radio
  • Access to a Network of Experienced Operators
  • Online Chat for Help and Discussions

Meeting Notice

The next TARA meeting is Wednesday, March 13th at 7:00 pm at the Lafayette Police Department Training Center, located at 1301 South Street in Lafayette. Note time change- meeting will start at 7:00 pm.
The March program meeting will feature Bob Burns, AK9R, who is the ARRL Section Manager for the Indiana Section. He will be speaking on the relevance of the ARRL in local organizations and also talking about ARRL's Log Book of the World. He has also asked if there is anything else we would like him to cover?
