RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

YLRL 14th Anniversary Party
W2OWL, Ruth, YLRL Vice-President, and her Contest Committee (W1FTJ and W4SGD) have decided upon several modifications in the Anniversary Party rules for this year. Note them well, for they should make for a bigger and better contest than ever before. Summarized briefly, the modifications are:
2) the number of operating hours is limited;
3) extra credit to be allowed for low-powered stations; and
4) the same YL may be worked on more than one band for additional credit.
Incidentally, YLs interested in information concerning the YLRL are invited to write Miriam Blackburn, W3UUG, YLRL Secretary-Treasurer, Box 2, Ingomar, Pennsylvania.
Read on for complete Party rules.
Frequencies: All bands may be used. Cross-band operation is permitted, but only 'phone-to-'phone and c.w.-to-c.w.
Eligibility: This contest is open to all licensed YL or XYL operators throughout the world (not restricted to YLRL members). Contacts with OMs do not count - the YL-OM Contest will be held at a later date.
Procedure: Call "CQ YLRL."
Exchange: QSO number; RS or RST report; name of state, U. S. possession, VE call area, or country.
Scoring: a) 5 points for each contact. Same YL may be worked on other bands for additional credit. b) Add number of points and then multiply by number of different states, U. S. possessions, VE call areas and countries worked. (Maryland and District of Columbia count as one state.) c) All 'phone contestants running 150 or less watts input at all times may then multiply the final score by 1.5. All c.w. contestants running 150 or less watts input at all times may then multiply the final score by 1.25.
Awards: A cup will be awarded the highest-scoring entry in each category - 'phone and c.w. These cups are awarded on a yearly basis. Any operator winning the same cup three times gains permanent possession of it. Second and third place awards will be donated. Certificates will be awarded to the high scorers for 'phone and c.w. in each U. S. call area and in each country.
Logs: Copies of all logs must be postmarked not later than Dec. 31, 1953; to be sent directly to Ruth B. Siegelman, W2OWL, Vice-President, YLRL, 1414 Wythe Place, Bronx 52, New York. (When submitting copies of logs, please list 'phone contacts and c.w. contacts separately.)
Here is information on the YLRL Nets revised and brought up-to-date as of October, 1953, by YLRL Vice-President W2OWL. All nets welcome new members to call in at any time.
YLs interested in forming nets other than those listed are invited to write W2OWL.
