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. 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 (firstname.lastname@example.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.
We had a great Field Day and club picnic. With visitors, operators, and picnickers, there were 85 – 90 attendees. The beef tri-tip barbecue prepared by Terry Schultheiss KG7BAM was awesome and drew a lot of positive comments. Thanks to Terry and Jo (KF7WOT) for all the hard work in making the picnic a success. Here is a link to the pictures, most of which were taken by Art Protas KG6AY. Field Day unofficial results will be posted soon.
Pictures of the hamfest can be found by going to the menu and selecting “Prescott Hamfest at ERAU” and then selecting “Hamfest Pictures”.
The video of pictures produced by Chuck Zappala, KE7SA can be found under “Prescott Hamfest at ERAU”. Then select “Hamfest Video”.
Thanks to Mike Belanger W1DGL, Dottie Akers KG7RGG, Chuck Zappala KE7SA, and Dixie Zappala N7OYY for taking and contributing these photos.
