BUDDY-UP project by KA1ULN and YOU

who is your YL buddy?  what projects have you worked on together? which Contests have you worked together? do you need a YL Buddy? Buddy-up YL's 33 ________________________________________ This BUDDY-UP project is created to spark more YL's to push their PTT button, YL's work together, 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 a 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 for a successful 59 QSO by the operating station) Can help with things like mike gain and other details like this that you the operator cannot hear. PLEASE comment below on who is your buddy This works on all bands. When you hear a YL on the air please give her priority! check out YLRL.org if you have more ideas on this YL BUDDY-UP project please sen
