Dad was an amateur radio operator (HAM) and somewhere along the way, maybe just to prove she could, she learned Morse code at 5 words per minute and taught herself all of the technical stuff and passed the exam to get her first HAM license. Never being satisfied, she improved her Morse code speed to 7 and then 12 words per minute and learned even more technical "stuff", took the exams and got the next two higher categories of licenses. She loved talking to people on the radio and made friends around the world and actually travelled to visit some of them. She was an active member of Young Ladies Radio League and served in several different leadership positions with them.

Dutch Young Ladies Club Proud 2B PI4YLC Posted on 19/02/2019 by pa1eng
Dutch YL- award 2018
Almost one year ago we turned the month of March into ‘our month’, as we launched our Dutch YL-award. We made a lot of long distance radio contacts with radio amateurs all across the globe. This year we will celebrate International Women’s Day, by organising “Ladies Night at PI4AA”.
CQ ham radio… mail from Japan!
Through their radio contacts radio-amateurs make friends far off. Sometimes these contacts lead to something special. Today, a big envelope arrived, covered in strange signs and exotic stamps. Inside, a Japanese magazine for radio amateurs: the ‘CQ Ham radio’ accompanied by a 50MHz special. Somewhere in the middle of the magazine one finds an article about the Dutch YL-award. In Japanese, of course.
Yukiko Maki 7K4TKB is a freelance writer for ‘CQ ham radio’. She contacted us some weeks ago about the Dutch YL-award 2018. She asked if she could write an article about our activities. Yes, of course! We’re not exactly sure what she wrote, but we are Proud 2B PI4YLC! in a Japanese radio magazine…

PI4YLC in RDXC with nine YL operators! Posted on 17/03/2018 by pa1eng
the Dutch Young Ladies Club contest team joined the Russian DX contest (RDXC) for the 6th time. Since a YL-operator team participated at the SP-DX contest in 2012, the team has grown every year and now consists of eleven Young Ladies. The YLs live every where in the country (and just across the border in Germany), it is a challenge to have everyone present at the same time. That is why it is extra special to have PI4YLC participate in the contest with nine (!) YL-operators. OM Raymond PA5DX helped us with the set-up.
“LADIES NIGHT” FROM THE NETHERLANDS
March 1: Ladies Night at PI4AA Posted on 03/02/2019
On the 8th of March it is International Women's Day and that is why last year we named the month of March 'our' month with a YL-award. This year we are going to do something different to bring attention in March for the YLs in the radio hobby: a Ladies Night at PI4AA on Friday, March 1st.
PI4AA (VERON HQ station)
Because Emmie PA1EM, Mariëtte PA1ENG and Heather PD3GVQ are already connected to the editors of PI4AA, the intention is that they will be the presenters during the broadcast. The editorial staff will take care of the copy and editing. The attendance call-in after the broadcast will be provided by operators from the PI4YLC contest team.
