The Yolo Amateur Radio Society is an Amateur Radio Service group primarily a public service oriented club assisting with communications for many public events around the Sacramento Valley, including the annual Foxy's Fall Century and Davis Double Century bike tours.

Monthly meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month in the classroom building at Explorit Science Center, located at 3141 Fifth Street, in Davis, California. We normally meet at 6:30 p.m. for dinner (arranged by the club), and the meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.

Weekly nets are held on Mondays from 8:30-9:00 on the Mt. Vaca repeater (147.000 negative offset).

2005-12-11 23:15:24   hello all, my friend NickSchmalenberger has interested me in amature radio. I would like to become licensed but I do not have a radio. If any of you have an old radio you can give me or have one to loan, please send an email. Thank you. —GregoryThrasher

A radio is completely unneccessary to have a license.

2006-03-04 12:29:44   not quite an amateur radio question but....does anyone know the radio system info for the City of Davis's radio set up? I have a scanner but it's pretty old, and I think the City's new system doesn't get picked up. Have a great day. —RocksandDirt

2006-03-04 12:58:36   The City of Davis has some conventional frequencies assigned to them, but I haven't heard anything on them the entire time I've lived here. They do have a license for an 800 MHz trunked system and I think that's what the city uses now. —WilliamLewis

2006-03-04 13:11:48   ahh, Thanks william. that's likely it. looks like time to upgrade the scanner....any idea if they've gone to a APO 25? —RocksandDirt

2006-03-10 21:05:43   Yes they are completely digital now, except Fire is still analog - go to and find davis (system id is BC3B ) — MY callsign - got it today! - is KI6CYC —JeffBoyce

2006-03-11 09:48:38   That's it, make me feel like an old man. KC6*** —GrumpyoldGeek
