CLUB HISTORY - York Region Amateur Radio Club (originally called York North Amateur Radio Club) was founded in 1959 in York County, Ontario, Canada (York County is now the Regional Municipality of York). In the 1990's another radio club in southern York Region, Thornhill Radio Amateurs Club amalgamated with YRARC and the club's members now come from all parts of the Region and beyond. We are one of the largest radio clubs in the Greater Toronto Area.

The club provides this service to many community activities throughout the region. We also have an active Emcomm/ARES group that has established stations at various emergency operations centres in the region including the regional headquarters (seat of Regional government) in Newmarket. Field Day is also a very big event for the club. Typically we operate class 5A with a GOTA station, satellite station, 6m station as well. The York Region Hamfest held on the first Saturday in November is one of the largest in Canada and brings together hams from all over Ontario.Other annual events include the club barbeque on the first Tuesday in June and the club Christmas party on the first Tuesday in December. Club meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month (except July and August) with a program of interest to amateur radio operators.
