YARA's breakfast at the A&W. Casual event. Hams from outside the Yukon often join.
The Yukon Amateur Radio Association (YARA) is a Yukon registered society with about 25 members throughout the Yukon. This is about half the authorized amateur radio operators in the Yukon.
Members are active in the community and often travel to hamfests in other areas. We are involved in real and simulated emergency communications situations. We practice ours skills through our daily "emergency preparedness net" as well as through communications in support of community events like the Canada Winter Games, the Klondike International Road Relay (“KRR”) and the Kluane Chilkat International Bike Relay (“KCIBR”). YARA provides support for communications for other community organizations.
We also help people get their Amateur Radio Operator Certificates and run courses.
