"YACHT, May Excitement fill your Sails and Catch the Ham Radio Wave as we Ship our Signal around the World"  Promoting the enjoyment of Ham Radio with emphasis on youth.
Sailing on to new heights.
Our purpose is to expand horizons in the field of communications along with general and advanced ham radio techniques, and to foster a greater appreciation of the role they play in the overall hobby of amateur radio, as well as giving kids a challenge and enjoyment. We have 133 members in 27 states and 4 countries.   Come sail with us, and join our echolink and HF nets. Keep youth in ham radio on a high level, now and in the future..

As of 3/21/15, Samuel KG5AYI/AG, YTM#95 passed his General.  He is  9 years old, and a first class example of a young ham op.
Both he and his dad KG5AYJ upgraded to Generals.  Chad is also a YACHT adult member YTC#34. Another brother coming soon....
WEEKLY NET REVIEW:  YYN of June 20 posted 15 stations in the log.  Another nice net.  Try and check in to our "Firecracker Net" on July 4 at 7pm CST.  If you cannot, then consider the "Kandy Net" at 7pm on Sunday, W8PIF-R.  I will be on vacation the next two YYN's, July 11 and 18.  Justin AC8PI will act as NC.
Remember the HF Youth Net, 8pm Sat. No HF net on July 4.
