YL Hams


Welcome to our site.

This site is for all YL Hams everywhere.

The Purpose of our YL Net is to provide a forum for Licensed Female Hams of all ages and ham experience -- to meet on the air for fellowship, to discuss common interests, to discuss technical topics, to learn how to prepare for emergency events and communications, and more.

Each week we will cover many of those and other eclectic subjects, including providing information on topics such as FAQs, answers to technical questions, information about upcoming events and activities, and more.

We invite all female (YL) Hams everywhere to check in to this net.

We meet every Monday Night at 8PM EST

If you are in the Chattanooga Area and can hit the repeaters you will find us on the 444.100 Repeater +5000 and No Tone.

If you can't hit the 444.100 and /or are far far away -- you can join us using

EchoLink Node N9ZEN-R node 68581

The Purpose of this website is to provide information of interest to YLs and all Hams.

EchoLink was discussed at our innaugural Net on August 7, 2017 and you will see a link in the drop down list in the menu bar for a summary of that discussion.

Echolink was discussed because YLs can check into this weekly YL Net using direct access to the repeater or (if too far away to 'hit' the repeater) by Echolink. And indeed we are getting check ins using Echolink -- so if you are far away, please check in using Echolink. You are always welcome.

This website also provides Helpful Links to websites, videos, articles, and other sources of information that relate to things about which YL Hams want to know.

The Chattanooga Amateur Radio club is our home and we invite you to visit its webpage. Here's the Link to W4AM.Net
