The YLRL Organization is made up of, run by and promotes WOMEN!

(thanks to Robin , KJ7BI for this sentence).

YLRL was founded by Ethel Smith, W7FWB/K4LMB ;  Lida King, W1GQT;  Jean Doss, W5HYF;  Genevieve Capstaff, W6RGX;  Marjorie Frazier, W7GXI;  Mary Bamberg, W8SBB;  Anita Bien, W8TAY/W4JCR;  Lenore Kingston Jensen, W9CHD/W6NAZ;  Enid Carter Aldwell, W9NXB/W6UXF/KH6IHW;  Jean Burkhead, W9NLW;  Loretta Ensor, W9UA/WØUA;  Carol Keating, W9WWP/W6WS& Ethel Pick VE2HI  in 1939.  It is the longest and oldest YL Organization. These ladies made it possible for us to continue to make Amateur Radio a way of communicating with other YLs.  Don't think even these ladies ever thought that 80 years later we would be a world wide organization.

2019 is the 80th year of the YLRL organization.  The longest running YL club in the world.  Five Hundred (500+) YLs can not be wrong.

YLRL is an organization for women with amateur radio licenses and like radio itself, extends to women all over the world. On this website you can learn about the organization, acknowledge our fore-mothers, purchase items to show your pride and connection, find out the latest information about contests and special events, and stay updated on happenings with our members.

Any questions? Our knowledgeable past president Lois WB3EFQ, has agreed to field and direct queries or you can ask any officer and we will get back to you.  Please click HERE to send Lois an email
