Talk-in: JR1VI Repeaters, as well as IRLP Reflector 9202, WIRES Roundtable #0522D, the TIARA Echolink Conference Room, and the WIRES TIARA conference.
The Tokyo International Amateur Radio Association (TIARA) holds monthly meetings in English usually in Jiyugaoka, Tokyo. Jiyugaoka is just a few minutes from Shibuya on the Tokyu Toyoko Line, or from Oimachi on the Tokyu Oimachi Line. Meetings are held on the third Friday of most months except August (Field Day) and December (Christmas Party). The meetings are open not only to members, but other English-speaking hams and foreigners residing in or visiting Japan interested in amateur radio.
Mobile/HT talk-in frequency: 144.570 (100.0 hz tone)
TIARA members gather on 21.320 MHz at 1000 JST (0100Z) most Sundays for an informal chat. Join us! You can also participate by connecting to the *TIARA* Conference on Echolink or the 9202 Reflector on IRLP. (If the *TIARA* Echolink conference is not available, try connecting directly to JQ1YEG-L (#149125).)
