A Club for YL Ham Radio Operators

Montana, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon and Washington

(but all YLs are always welcome*)

About Us

Welcome to the MINOW NET. We are a group of ladies, who are active in amateur radio. When MINOW was organized in 1963 the membership included YLs from Montana, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. Today we have members throughout the United States, although only those members that live in Montana, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon and Washington have voting privileges.

Annual dues are $5 and are due on May 1st of each year. You may pay your dues in advance if you wish. Dues should be sent to the Secretary/Treasurer or can be paid at the annual meeting in May. The dues help support our website and other small projects.

Current activities include the weekly Echolink net on node 286905 (ALARA) on Thursday evening at 7:30 pm Pacific time, a weekly HF net on 14.310 or 14.288 or thereabouts on Friday morning at 9:30 am Pacific time, an Annual Meeting in May and a Luncheon in September.

We have a website where YLs can gain more information about us and about many HAM Radio topics.

We also publish a newsletter twice a year which is emailed to all of our members.

We staff information tables at various ham fairs in the MINOW NET area so look for us if you are at Sea-Pac or any other area shows.

Feel free to download our brochure for you or a friend or family member.
