For folks wanting to get together with others from the NW Ohio area and chat about radio communications, the monthly TARE meeting is coming up this Thursday 01/15 at 7:00 PM.
TARE (Toledo Area Radio Enthusiasts) meets every third Thursday of the month at Schlotzsky's Deli on Reynolds Rd in Maumee Ohio (Schlotzsky's Deli on Google Maps). There is always a good handful of folks there and the get together is pretty informal. Just look for the tables pushed together with radios and some laptops. Discussions usually range from shortwave listening, scanning and public safety monitoring, amateur radio communications and more (or less).
Folks that may have purchased or received newer radios from over the holidays, feel free to bring your equipment and questions. There are usually others with most of the common brands and models of scanners present, and there is always somebody that can help.
