York Region Amateur Radio Club defined a set of frequencies primarily for use by Public Service and Emcomm.
The list tried to define a mix of repeaters and simplex frequencies which were called channels (or memories) and people could just say let's meet on Channel 3 or memory 3, rather than having to say 145.350MHz, 103.5Hz, -600KHz shift.
Below is the list in PDF format (3 files) and .xls format with 3 tabs.
Please note: A team has been formed to review these lists based on repeaters being removed from service and new repeaters with digital technology being put in place.
If you are not ready to join the club yet, but still wish to keep up with things happening around York Region then please sign up for the google group.

Field Day 2020 was very different this year. We are still awaiting final results of the joint YRARC at Home field day team, but scores seemed quite good. Results are usually announced in the December edition of QST Magazine.
ARRL Field Day team had defined some new rules for this year.
The results will be found here
