What is YLRL
Organized in 1939, YLRL (Young Ladies' Radio League) is a non-profit organization of women Amateur Radio Licensees. With a membership of approximately 800, it is international in scope with about 100 of those members who are DX YLs.
YLRL exists to encourage and assist YLs (Young Ladies) throughout the world to enter into the Amateur Radio Service. There are a variety of interests to offer licensed YLs from traffic handling, public service, contests, Awards, etc.
Of course, there are the infinite benefits derived from just plain gal-to-gal rag-chewing or eyeball QSOs at YL conventions and the resulting friendships. You are always welcome in any YLRL activity. Come on in - the YLs are anxious to meet you!
YLRL provides a bi-monthly newsletter, YL Harmonics to their members which highlight news about YLs in the US and DX-YL's as well as news that may be of interest to both. YLRL provides 2 scholarship to worthy YLs to continue their educations, with preference given to those in the academic study of communications and electronics or related arts and sciences. YLRL also offers a program of specialized service to blind YLs through the Tape Topics program. YL Harmonics is sent to the visually impaired members upon request. For more information, contact the Tape Topic Librarians.
