BUDDY-UP - YL helping YL also Confirming Qso's HELP
thank you so much for visiting my blog. please pass the word about BUDDY-UP.
This BUDDY-UP project is created to spark more YL's to push their PTT button and/or
to get more YL (Young Ladies) involved in Amateur radio. (again)
here is more about my BUDDY-UP project:
GOAL: is to become and better operator with the help of a YL BUDDY
When working contests your buddy can hear you and give you feedback on how she is heard
in the pile up (this might help when trying to be heard by the operating station)
YL's can organize a sched to work together to achieve goals. get WAS - Worked All States
get certificate, and lots more.
YL's can teach each other HOW to log a QSO online. many YL's STILL use paper and pen. (we must
get all YL's to use online confirmations) check online
This link show HOW to Use QRZ.com to start login and start logging your awesome QSO's.
Yl's can also build their own antenna with wire or aluminum. check out the Understanding antennas pages here in this BLOG:
Your BUDDY can help shape your perceptions, outlook, values, culture, emotions, and behaviors of ham radio.
PERCEPTION - of how you SOUND
OUTLOOK - of your SIGNAL REPORT
VALUES - of your EQUIPMENT
CULTURE - of other YL's
EMOTIONS - of the QSO'S
BEHAVIOR - of you during a CONTEST
Good communication requires listening — and can make a huge difference in group work.
For example, by listening to various opinions, you could take the lead by incorporating
all of them, or explaining why only one of them will work. BUDDY-UP should feel they
have a voice, which is very important, but if you want to be more influential, you
can be more engaged, (talkative), show how motivated you are (while motivating others),
and share your own perceptions frequently. Your peers will view you as someone they can
look up to and work well with.
This could be a “confidence boost” for the next time you are ill-prepared to discuss something out loud.
Can help with things like mike gain and other details like this that you the operator
cannot hear. Meetup with a buddy here on the net (thursday night - echolink NF4GA-R 8 pm est)
and work together.

Figure out a schedule and work each other during the week.
This works on all bands.
When you hear a YL on the air please give her priority!
