YHARG is affiliated to the Phoenix ARC


The Youth Hostels ARG is a special interest group of the Phoenix Amateur Radio Club. Formed in 2013, our interests are outdoors activities as well as amateur radio, and with a good helping of topics such as archaeology, history, and many others.

We also enjoy a nice cup of Darjeeling, but we are definitely not a tea & biscuits club.

YHARG normally operates from Gargrave in North Yorkshire (WAB-SD95) in the region of 'Yoredale' which encompasses the south-western portion of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The 'club' callsign for the YHARG is M0YHA but the secondary regional identifier is always used (e.g. MX0YHA in England). Most activities are undertaken by YHARG Chairman, Kevin M0XLT.

Many activities are undertaken in collaboration with the Phoenix Amateur Radio Club (MX0PHX).

'Youth Hostels'

In 2013 the YHARG was formed by a small group of people who were active 'hostellers' with the intention of using hostels in England, Scotland and Europe as bases for portable radio activities. This developed into a much more innovative programme of activities, going far beyond the original aims, and now encompasses all sorts of amateur radio activities that are of interest to us.

We use and support hostelling organisations whenever possible, including Independent Hostels UK, Hostelling International, YHA England & Wales and the Scottish YHA. YHARG is affiliated to the YHA (England & Wales) but does not represent any hostelling organisation.
