Welcome to Yavapai Amateur Radio Club

Welcome to the Yavapai Amateur Radio Club’s (YARC) website.  YARC serves the quad cities area of Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley/Paulden, and Dewey/Humboldt.  We are a group that enjoys the diverse aspects of ham radio.  YARC is also an ARRL Special Service Club that is dedicated to public service and emergency preparedness.  YARC is the largest amateur radio club in the state of Arizona with approximately 280 members.  One of our goals is to enable interested persons to get their FCC amateur radio license and also grow their knowledge and enjoyment of the hobby.  This web site is a place for club members to gather and share information.  Please check back on a regular basis for news and updates.

Note:  If you are a YARC member and are unable to log into your Members account, or if you have changed any personal roster information, contact the club treasurer (treasurer@w7yrc.org).

The club holds its meetings on the first Thursday of the month at 7 PM in the Prescott Mile High Middle School. Please join us.  See the link below for directions.


For some unknown reason, YARC web site calendar events exist but are not displaying on the Calendar tab.  Randy W6TYV, our web master, is aware of the situation and is looking into the problem.  These events do show up on the “Upcoming Events” section of the home page, however.

The  November YARC club meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 2nd, 7 PM at the Mile High Middle School (see directions at the link below).  This month is Lloyd Halgunseth WA6ZZJ Memorial month.  The 2017 Public Service Award will be made.  If you are an ARES/RACES member please wear your organization shirt.  YARC members are urged to wear their club shirts in Lloyd’s memory.

November is also officer and board member elections.  Three board members, the club Secretary and the Vice President are to be elected.  If you wish to be a candidate for one of these offices, or want to nominate someone, contact Frank K8FB (k8fb@w7yrc.org) or Kathy KJ6KMK (president@w7yrc.org). 

The club meeting is open to any interested person.
