Hi folks

You probably noticed the guest book is missing from the menu bar.

With exactly 147 requests for new guestbook posts ( all from spammers)  it was getting a bit overwhelming for me and my email inbox to process.

I’ll wait a while and reinstall the guest book feature again in the near future.

You can still leave comments in the posts, but you have to be logged in to do so.

Welcome to The New VE1YAR Club Website

Hi Im Garth ve1jax (one of this sites Admininistrators) and I would like to welcome you to the new Yarmouth Amateur Radio Club website.

This website is designed as a custom Word Press blog style website with all the bells and whistles that should make this site interesting.

How it works.

First you need to register (please use your callsign as your username)  please use lowercase letters.

Please keep your “screen name” the same as your “user name”  (your screen name should also be all lower case letters) , this is the Yarmouth Amateur Rado Club site and everyone knows you as your callsign.

As a paid club member you will have “Author” status and be able to post and edit your own entries.*

Please take a few moments to study the website tools.  As you can see, you may customize any entry.  Post what ever you like ie: editorials, posters, artwork, items for sale, log book entries (word and excel files work great with this software), post links to upcoming events,  announce meetings in the calendar, have links your own website, show off your video.  Tell the amateur radio world about your ham station or post a link to a funny Ham story on Youtube!

As the website grows we will be adding more categories (see the right sidebar) and are looking to you for suggestions to expand this new website.

Questions or Comments!

Write me, call me or just stop in.

Thank you
