In amateur radio, a YL or Young Lady is a female operator of any age.

History

The first women to be licensed as radio amateurs in the United Kingdom were Barbara Dunn G6YL and Nelly Corry G2YL; both initially went on-air in the early 1930's. The Young Ladies' Radio League, a US-based group created expressly for women in amateur radio, was established in 1939 with membership both in North America and worldwide.
