The Fermilab Antiproton Source began operation in 1985 and now routinely runs at or near design specifications. Experience with the source in its primary modes of operation is described. A summary of operating statistics, improvements, and sources of downtime is presented. The Antiproton Source has proven itself to be a reliable source of antiprotons for the Tevatron Collider as well as a workhorse for a variety of studies. Improvements have brought the antiproton stacking rate to a peak of 2×1010 antiprotons/h within a factor of five of design. Modifications have also made it possible to decelerate particles to 3.9 GeV/c
