 BYLARA Chair lady’s Message

I hope that everyone has survived the bad weather we have been having lately and are looking forward to the summer ahead. We had 3 inches of snow here which is very unusual for Portland and that it stayed for 3 days. The temperature was 1 degree, so it was very cold and slippery taking JJ (our dog) out for his walk. I am glad it has passed now but the local newspaper says it will be back in the Easter Week. So, all of you keep safe during the next few days ahead if the bad weather does come.

We are just putting together the events, meetings and visits and will publish a full list in the next few days via the Web page.

As you will probably know Judith has agreed to take the website under her wing. So please let Judith have any information of events in your area and they will be placed on the site so that everyone will have the details as well as informing Maureen so that she can place the details in the Newsletter.

Judith and Maureen both work very hard to keep the site and magazine as up-to-date as the information they are given.

I am looking forward to seeing you all again through the year and hope that you are all keeping in good health.

I would also like to say a very big “thank you” to all of you who go out of your way to put BYLARA on the map, so to speak, and attend as many meets as they can. Without these ladies and all of you out there, there would be no BYLARA. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I would like to wish you all a Very Happy Easter, not too many eggs and God Bless.

Your Chairlady, Carol

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.
