The beaten path is the safest, but the traffic is terrible

Special Event Happening.  

Stella Gurka, WB2FAU has organized a special event honoring the 55,000 graduates of the flexible gunnery school at Buckingham Arm Air Corps training base during WWII.  The base is near Fort Myers, Florida.  Listen in and around 14.273.  She would love to hear from YLs.


Poppy, VK6YF, is still in hospital but responding well to treatment - Please keep your get well cards and notes moving across the Pacific to her  Her address is:

Mrs Poppy Bradshaw, VK6YF
29A Wicks St
Eden Hill, WA
6054 Australia

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.

President's Message

I hope you will all try to get on the air for the CLARA Chatter Party March 17th and 21st. It starts at 17:00 UTC both days runs for 24 hours each day.

The whole idea is to get on the air and talk to as many YLs as possible, as often as possible. If you want to keep a log and submit it for the contest, that will be fun. If you just want to work some new YLs, that will also be fun. If you want to talk to some old friends, that will also be fun. Thinks 33's and 88's when looking for frequencies.

Call CQ YLs or just CQ. Or listen for those YL voices and jump in.

The rules can be found on the CLARA Contest Rules page, but it is hard to go wrong - just talk to as many YLs as possible, give your name and your province, state or DC entity.

If you are a CLARA member, please tell folks that. Make sure the folks you talk to know you are a YL. OMs are also welcome to join in, but for those keeping score, YLs are worth far more points. If you think you will submit a log, check out the rules to make sure your log has all you need.

Till next time, 33,73
