The Telescope Array (TA) experiment 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 that consists of additional fluorescence telescopes arranged to view higher elevations and an infill array of 103 plastic scintillation counters. In this work, we describe the combined TA surface detector (SD) and TALE fluorescence detector spectrum, check the calculation of the TA SD spectrum at the highest energies using an alternative, Constant Intensity Cut, method and discuss the declination dependence of the TA SD spectrum at the highest energies. Details of the TALE spectrum calculation have been presented in a separate work at this conference.
