The New YLRL Annual ward is now on this website.  Sure hope we get more participation on this one this year.

Would all of you YL's who are doing a Quilt Square for the CLARA Quilt please do me 1 favour. Please write a brief Bio about you, and the hobby of Amateur Radio. Why did you get into the hobby, and why is it important to you.

One of our contributors of squares Jeanine VA7QD said that if we take pictures of each square contributed, and the brief bio of each YL, and then take pictures of the finished quilt(s) we could sell them at the convention and everyone would have a keepsake of the quilts and have a bit of knowledge about who did it.

Even if they didn’t do the square personally I think it is a brilliant idea, so please send the bios via email is fine, that way I just copy and paste, or just add it to the square when you send it to me in the mail.

Happy New Year to you all, may 2017 be wonderful. 33 Val


President's Message

Hello Everyone,

January, the start of a New Year.  Now the count down starts towards  CLARA's 50th Birthday Bash. 

I am so looking forward to meeting so many of you YLs.  I know many of you have been to many conventions, have deep friendships and great memories.  I am hoping that when you come to Winnipeg in July this year, that you will meet YLs you have never met before except maybe on the air.  

We have some wonderful events planned.  We are going to be having a forum on how to get and retain members.  I know all the YL organizations have problems getting new members so this brain session should help all of us.

We are also fortunate in that Sarla VU2SWS is going to give a presentation on her latest DX pedition.  

Please remember that your quilt squares must be in to me by April first for those girls who are in Canada or Overseas that are sending in for the quilt.  The same date is for the girls that live in the United States, only you send yours to Margaret AE7MB.  

Please go to the Clara Birthday Bash page for the registration form and also to see what is on the program.  Please be advised that the times are not written in stone, and some things may be changed around. 

Please remember to send in your 2017 membership dues to Heather sooner rather than later.  If you are thinking of joining, please go to the Membership page to download the application.  For those of don't want to download the form, it will be in the next Clarion.  

33, 73, & 88 as the case may be



Well ladies of CLARA, I have a challenge for you.

Some of our sister radio operators in the USA would like to become members of CLARA.

The deal is: If you sponsor them into CLARA, they will sponsor you into YLRL. This is what YL Radio is all about.

The more members we get, the more members they get.

So please think seriously about sponsoring some of our American girls into CLARA. It's not as if we have lots of members in Canada...More is better. Thank you. 


At times we have had a lot of QRM on our 20M CLARA Net, which runs Tuesdays at 1700.  So if you can't find us on 14.120, please turn your dial to 14.123.  I am sure you will hear us as you get closer.  


It has come to our attention that many folks who need to send in a change of address or articles to share and don't know where to send it. So please go to the Contact Us page, and you will find your area reps along with their email address. Please forgive us for this oversight, Also, under QSL & Contests, please find our Net Frequencies and time. Note that all our CLARA nets run from September to the end of May.

Please Check out the Upcoming Event's Page. This will have upcoming events for the current month. This page will only work if everyone sends me the information.  


Happy Birthday to all our





So glad you are here, please take the time to look through our site. You are welcome to send articles or pictures to the webmaster.  We would love to hear from you
