Our thanks go to the "Real Fabrica de Cordoaria da Junqueira" and the NRA (Naval Radio Amateurs) for their support  for an event that we hope will be positive for all the female radio amateurs. 

Historial Background to station locations:
1)    Real Fábrica da Cordoaria da Junqueira,  Lisboa, formerly the Royal Rope Factory manufactured cables, sisal ropes, sails and flags for the Portuguese ships.
The building's facilities extend along the river for almost four hundred meters, with a width of only about fifty meters. These dimensions relate to the needs of the production process. Its location on the river also facilitated the supply of products to ship owners. Production ceased in 1998 and today the building, dating from 1779. is a national monument
2) Dom Fernando II e Glória is a wooden-hulled, 50 gun frigate of the Portuguese Navy.  Built in Goa, India, launched in 1843 she made her maiden voyage in 1845. The last sailing warship built by Portugal and also the last ship that undertook the India Run.
 Named as a tribute to the king consort of Portugal Ferdinand II, and to Our Lady of Glory, a figure of special devotion among the catholic population of Goa, the ship remained in active service until 1878, when she made her last sea voyage.
After being gutted by fire  the frigate was towed to an area of mud-flats  on the river Tagus,  remaining abandoned and half buried for the next 29 years.  In 1990 the Portuguese Navy decided to restore her.
Part of the Naval Museum display, she was a major attraction during the  Expo '98 which marked the 500th anniversary of the discovery of the sea route to India by Vasco da Gama..
The International Register of Historic Ships considers the Dom Fernando II e Glória as the fourth oldest armed frigate, and the eight oldest sailing warship in the world.

St Patricks Day & Radio Award

St Patricks Day Celebrating On Air: The event runs over the full 48 hour period over the 17th March worldwide (12 noon on the 16th March to 12 noon on the 18th March UTC) As each timezone starts and ends the day at different times, the event runs for 48Hrs to give each area of the world a chance to make contacts.
The St Patrick Day Award is  fun non competitive on air celebration of St Patricks Day. 
Anyone worldwide either licenced or as a SWL can take part in this fun celebration

Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival, on 17 March the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461) Patrick was a 5th-century Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. The foremost patron saint of Ireland; Saint Patrick's Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the British Overseas Territory of Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world, especially in Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand.
Christians also attend church services and the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day. Perhaps because of this, drinking alcohol – particularly Irish whiskey, beer or cider – has become an integral part of the celebrations. On St Patrick's Day it is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories (the "wearing of the green")

Dutch Young Ladies meeting YLs at HAM radio Friedrichshafen 2016     http://pi4ylc.nl/en/
Posted on 24/06/2016: Today the biggest European fair for Hamradio started happening. Five members of PI4YLC, the contes tteam of the Dutch Young Ladies Club, are in  Friedrichshafen-Germany visiting the fair: Mariëtte PA1ENG, Lisa PA2LS, Chantal PA5YL, Ineke PD2CWM and Claudia PD5AX. It’s a great opportunity to meet Hams from all over Europe.
We talked to several YL’s from the DARC-YL-referat and some top-grade contesters like Irina DL8DYL and Sandy DL1QQ (WRTC 2018). We also visited the French YL’s and met Christine F4GDI and were able to catch up with Andreja S56B and Klara HA5BA. Tomorrow we will attend the YL-meeting, organised by the DARC YL’s.
Posted on 30/06/2016: HAM Radio 2016 is over and we look back on a fantastic weekend filled with meeting old and new contacts. There were very good foodcondx with cake, homemade cappuccino, ice cream and dinners in restaurants. This combined with the warm weather and the Bodensee (lake next to Friedrichshafen) turned the long weekend into a small holiday.
In addition to meeting various YLs (see previous post: ‘Dutch Young Ladies meeting YLS at HAM radio 2016’) we have met international contest groups such as D4C at the fair and IR4M at the Bavarian Contest Dinner. This might give us the oppurtunity in future for contest ‘DXpeditions’ to contest stations abroad.
Besides the PI4YLC team members there were other contest team members of the Netherlands as well at the fair: PA6Y from IJmuiden (see: www.pi4rck.net) and of course PI4TUE (sk) from Eindhoven who had traveled along with YLs of the Dutch Young Ladies club.
After a lot of years not visiting the HAM radio fair Chantal PA5YL ‘met herself’ at the booth of the radio scouts. In this booth there was a poster with a picture of her.
We very much enjoyed the several useful contacts and ideas for (contest) activities and had a lot of fun. We thank everyone who has contributed to our very positive experience. We managed to take a picture in front of the HAM radio 2016 QSL wall with the YLs of PI4YLC and our future team member.
