Highways Coverage


YARA maintains voice repeaters in Carcross, Faro, Haines Junction, Johnson's Crossing, Stewart Crossing, Whitehorse (4) and White River in Yukon as well as Bennett and Atlin in British Columbia. You can print a map of the entire system of repeater coverage along the highways.

By 2014 all repeaters in Yukon will require a 100Hz Tone to be activated.

All highway KM markers increase from south to north or east to west unless otherwise stated.

The NO COVERAGE designation does not mean a total lack of coverage. The repeaters may work beyond the listed points but the coverage will be spotty (hilltops usually) and the signal very noisy.
