Store your mics for one day of the week and take out the key.

This is the advice offered on our Sister sites of YLRL and CLARA and a challenge to all the British YLs.

The British Young Ladies Amateur Radio Association (BYLARA) was founded in April 1979 to further YL operating in Britain and so promote friendship, stimulate interest and, in particular, encourage good operating techniques and courtesy to all operators at all times.
BYLARA is affiliated to the RSGB and membership is open to all. Since its formation BYLARA has been instrumental in establishing several YL activities as follows:-

  • Get togethers are organised at various Rallies throughout the country.
  • A Newsletter is produced quarterly in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. All news and views will be welcomed by the Editor.
  • The BYLARA Award and Scottish BYLARA Award are available for working BYLARA Members and other YLs. See the Awards section for details.
  • Activity days 6th of every month. Call CQ YL on the hour on frequencies ending in 88.

Why not join our Yahoo Group and let us all know what radio you have worked recently?

Do you have a question about amateur radio that you can’t find the answer to? Join our Yahoo group, maybe one of our group knows the answer or where to find it.
