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 over 300 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.
