Club Program Presentations

Here are some of the club’s past presentations and reference materials.  Each month we try and bring some useful and helpful presentations to our members.  Also included are links to videos of the YARC club meetings, beginning with the September 20, 2018 club meeting.

If you have an idea that you would like to see presented please let us know and we will see what we can do to make it happen. Send an email to Club Programs

These presentations can be large in size so please allow plenty of time for them to download.

The ARRL Library is also a good source for other amateur radio related presentations.
