COVID-19 Crisis

Due to social distancing in this current COVID-19 crisis, all meetings of the Society have been suspended until further notice. 


For NWT information on the crisis see

YARS remains operational at this time. 

  • All YARS members are encouraged to maintain a radio watch on the repeater. 
  • VE8PAT is now restricted in terms of availability.  It is available should the emergency communications system be activated either territory-wide or locally in Yellowknife. 
  • Members are encouraged to get their equipment ready. 

While COVID may not be a major issue here, the disruption to supply lines to the North may be an issue especially if things deteriorate in the United States. 

YARS stands ready.
