CLARA is doing a 50th Birthday Challenge with Certificates

Please go to the CLARA's 50th Birthday Bash page to see the certificates and the rules.  We sincerely hope that ALL YLs will take in this Challenge.  You do not need to be a CLARA member to participate.  It is also open to OMs.



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

Girls, please don't forget to send in your BIOS for the Quilt Book.  When you got into ham radio, why you got into ham radio and why do you like most about ham radio.  Shorter rather than longer.  Please send them to me This email address is being protected from spambots.

President's Message

Hello May.  Well, looks like the crunch is on.  Ladies, you have 1 month to get your hotel reservations and send in your registrations for the CLARA's 50th Birthday Bash.  

The crunch is on not only for you, but for me also.  I am averaging about 1 registration per week, and I really hope that things pick up soon.  I have 15 name tags done, along with meal tickets and door prize tickets.  From all accounts, the door prizes are going to be awesome.  If the ones I have here are any indication, you ladies will have some wonderful choices to make when picking your prize, and there is more coming!.

Weather here in Saskatchewan is picking up, which means, I have to move and get my gardens and flower pots ready.  I am planting a lot of perennials this year.  I have tired to pick colors that the bees like, as it seems that our wonderful pollinators are getting few and far between.  So lots of purples, blues, whites etc.  anything to attract them.  Even some of my flower pots will have annuals that attract the bees.

Ok, so, please get those registrations in, and we are looking forward to seeing you in July.  Please don't forget, we have some really nice aprons for sale with the new CLARA Logo, and only $15.00.

That's all for now, take care, and stay healthy.

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
