Welcome to Yavapai Amateur Radio Club

Welcome to the Yavapai Amateur Radio Club’s (YARC) website.  YARC serves the quad cities area surrounding Prescott, Arizona.  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 the interested person 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.

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



Prescott Mile High Middle School Meeting Location

Note: The July 2, 2015 meeting will be held in the cafeteria, where the meeting was held in June.  The cafeteria is one building over (to the north) from the meeting room that is marked by the red arrow on the map.

The July meeting program will be a Special Interest Group (SIG) Breakout.  Meet with your favorite SIG(s) or start a new SIG.  Here is a link to a listing of the SIGs and the moderators.  We are planning on establishing a new SIG, “Basic Amateur Radio”, to address topics for new or inexperienced hams.
