Telescope Array (TA) is measuring cosmic rays of energies from PeV to 100 EeV and higher in the Northern hemisphere. TA has two parts: main TA and the TA low energy extension (TALE). Main TA is a hybrid detector that consists of 507 plastic scintillation counters on a 1200m - spaced square grid that are overlooked by three fluorescence detector stations. TALE is also a hybrid detector and it consists of additional fluorescence telescopes arranged to view higher elevations and an infill array of 100 plastic scintillation counters. In this work, we present a combined spectrum, over 5 orders of magnitude in energy, measured by the TA and TALE and compare this results with other experiments.
