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.
The club’s 447.650 MHz repeater is back on the air after a lot of work being done to move and re-install the repeater and antenna. Unfortunately, after the installation team headed down the mountain, the repeater’s performance dropped off quite a bit. Doug NO1D and his team hope to be able to get back up to Mt. Union in the coming week to rectify this problem. Click this LINK for a summary of this effort.
Dear ARRL member,
I am writing to you today because we are at a crossroad in our efforts to obtain passage of The Amateur Radio Parity Act.
Our legislative efforts scored a major victory in our campaign when The Amateur Radio Parity Act, H.R. 1301, passed in the House of Representatives yesterday, September 12th. The legislation now moves to the Senate, where we need every Senator to approve the bill.
You are one of over 730,000 licensed Amateur Radio Operators living in the United States. Many of you already live in deed-restricted communities, and that number grows daily.
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL HAMS TO GET INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS!
· If you want to have effective outdoor antennas but are not currently allowed to do so by your Home Owner’s Association, SEND THESE EMAILS TODAY!!
· If you already have outdoor antennas, but want to support your fellow hams, SEND THESE EMAILS TODAY!!
· If you want to preserve your ability to install effective outdoor antennas on property that you own, SEND THESE EMAILS TODAY!!
We need you to reach out to your Senators TODAY! Right away.
Help us in the effort. Please go to this linked website and follow the prompts:
