The Young Amateurs Radio Club (YARC) is a non-profit, international youth group with a focus on promoting the adoption and use of amateur radio among the youth. The YARC board manages the 800+ member online chat group known as the Young Hams Discord server, hosts contests with a focus on youth participation, and is recognized by the FCC as an amateur radio club under the callsign WY4RC.
Becoming a YARC member is free, and allows you to receive a club email, apply to use the WY4RC callsign to represent the club in contests, and get other cool benefits from our sponsors.
David noticed the lack of a strong, active youth community in amateur radio, and hoped to create one. Within a week, the server had nearly 100 members, as it quickly became a popular place for young operators to meet. After a month, a mod team formed, and the server began to host weekly nets on Echolink.
With 425 members in the server and a thriving community, the mods of the Young Hams Discord server announced the Young Amateurs Radio Club, which received an FCC Club License on March 12, 2018.
