As of February 1, 2021
Welcome to JLRS website.
JLRS, Japan Ladies Radio Society, is a group of female amateur radio license holders, which was founded in 1957 in Japan by 3 women, Fumi Abe JA1AEQ, Kuni Kan JA1YL, and late Kimi Kobayashi JA0EC.
As of February 2021, we have 135 members in Japan and 39 overseas. The group is administered by our board members elected from each call area in Japan and representatives in each call area.
****** Our main activities ******
* We publish our newsletters two to three times a year, on which we carry various information regarding amateur radio and any club activities. We utilize these newsletters as the tool to promote friendship among our members.
* Annual General Meeting with a social gathering party is a fun event to have eye-ball QSOs among our members as well as to visit some sightseeing spots. Lively discussion is conducted on the operation of the meeting.
* Each Call Area Meeting is also held by each area representative occasionally. Various topics in the area are discussed to help our members to enjoy amateur radio activities more.
* Newcomer/beginner support program called “WAKABA Support” aims to spur wide interest in amateur radio for those who are new to this hobby through orientations and other support activities.
* In spring and autumn every year, we hold contests in order to promote YL amateur radio activities.
