2017 YEAR of the YL Ham Radio Operator


The new Annual Award is now on the website:  sure hope we get more girls this time trying for this pretty award.


Thanks to Marsha N8FE who came up with this idea.  It is a great one.  So from now on, the following will apply to all Certificates. (except for Continuous Membership).  

1.  IRLP QSO's will count

2.  If you work a YL for the Flower Certificate (yearly), you may also count it towards the other certificates according the the rules with those other certificates.

3.  If sometimes you can hit another state on VHF/UHF,  even 2M simplex.  Guess what that will count as well.  Just make sure that all contacts are listed in your logs.  

I think this is a great idea to help YL's work for more certificates.  Again, thank you Marsha.

Would all of you YL's who are doing a Quilt Square for the CLARA Quilt please do me 1 favour.

Please write a brief Bio about you, and the hobby of Amateur Radio. Why did you get into the hobby, and why is it important to you. 

Our girls in the United States, you send your squares directly to Margaret AE7MB, so please send your bio to me so that we can include it, and maybe with some luck it will be ready for the Convention.  Thanks so much.
