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.

BWC Members can see our latest Newsletter in our Documents section.

Since its formation BYLARA has been instrumental in establishing several YL activities as follows:-

  • Every Wednesday from the 30th Nov 2011, Jenni M0HZT is starting new nets on 40m on 7.175 +/- QRM from 07.00 - 0900, 11.00 - 13.00 and 20.00 - 2200, using callsign M0BYL.
  • Monday YL net is moving from 14.223MHz to 14.280-14.288MHz to give more US YLs chance to join in. Time is still 15.00 UTC. KB4RM is net control and always has a good signal
  • Activity days 6th of every month. Call CQ YL on the hour on frequencies ending in 88
  • Get togethers are organised at various Rallies throughout the country, keep watching this page for detail.
