ZL3AG → ZL4GR- Earland, Myrtle - New Zealand
"February 6, 1939 was the day that ZL3AG 'joined em' because, she writes, 'My boyfriend was more interested in radio than in me.' It worked. The requirements in the early thirties were that a newly licensed operator spend the first twelve months operating 80 meter cw. After that, permission was given for phone on 80, and cw on 40, and 20 meters. Additional tests were required for 20 meter phone operation. Those rigid requirements became habit, and Myrt still was a cw operator on 20, and used voice on 40, and 80, with some operation on 10 meters when the band was open. Originally licensed as ZL3AG, Myrt recveived her later call in 1939 when she and the OM moved to the second district.
When not on the air, ZL4GR was usually with her second hobby, her garden."

ZS2AA - Hayes, Iris Hayes - South Africa
Licsensed 11/1937, first YL station in South Africa. First transmitter 2 1/2 watts, later 10 watts, both working off batteries and a vibropack."
(Source:CQ-YL p 151)
„Lives on a large sheep and cattle ranch called Poplar Grove near Whittlesea in South Africa. She was the first licensed operator in South Africa. Her being an amateur has started quite a fad in this respect since there is an nusually large percentage of yl operators among the South African amateurs. Since there is no source of a.c. power available, her transmitter, ending in a plate modulated 807, is powered by a vibrapack.“

She was born April 22, 1916. - My father was Reg Green, ZS6J, licenced 1933, age 22. - Mom went silent key July 27, 1997, and ZS6J died June 26 1993. - I got my licence on July 28, 1976, age 21. - My mom was the first Jewish radio ham in South Africa. - My mom started the SA Womens Radio Club and ran it for 30 years or so until 1990 (I think.) . - She kept in touch with Louisa Sando, Evelyn Scott, and many others, including Maxine Willis, W6UHA, and wrote for CQ magazine (Louisa's YL notes.)
