Date:          Tuesday 3rd December 2019

Location:   Sharon Temple - Temperance Hall

Time:          7:30 PM

Program:   "YRARC Xmas Party" - Please bring a non-perishable food item for the local food bank

This is traditionally the Xmas party. At this time the club pays it forward to those in need by providing non-perishable food donations to a local food bank.


This is an early reminder to set aside some non-perishable food to bring with you to this meeting.


This is our fourth meeting of 2019/2020.  We have programs planned but always welcome new speakers with a ham radio or scientific topic.  If you can make a presentation or know of someone who can please let me know.

This is also a great chance to join our club and get full value from the upcoming club year. Club Members get access to the members-only area.

YRARC Hamfest 

Geoff (VA3GS) and Dave (VA3DCY)

Thank you for your efforts to produce another great hamfest for the York Region Amateur Radio Club.

There are a lot of others who worked in the background and thank you to these people as well. 

I single out Geoff and Dave because and most may not know that the Markham Fair changed the halls on Geoff at the 11th hour! I cant imagine the effort it took to reorganize the floor and still make it the success it was.

Again thank you Geoff and Dave for going above and beyond.
