Not being a CW op the only one I know is vk4swe and that's because I let her use my station earlier on in the year when she visited.

I've worked Lyn a few times, her Dad was a Wireless Op. at Malin Head...
She's a good CW op, & has restored a number of old keys to a very high standard....
I last worked her from GB2BP, and Lyn was using a key that came from an IOM Steam Packet Company vessel....

Lyn can sometimes be found on 14.053 after the ANZA net has closed, in company with VK4CC - Col, on CW of course.

Very sorry to hear the bad news, as you know Lyn was over to see her Mum only a few weeks ago.
Thanks for letting me know, it saves me from putting my foot in it.

Mary is a truly lovely lady, she taught myself and a friend morse around her house and we only had to pay in wine and mars bars !!

She was and maybe still is, the senior morse examiner for this neck of the woods and believe or not is registered deaf !!

My Ex-Wife was quite a dab hand at Morse. Proficient at 25WPM and even won the GCHQ Telegraphist of the Year award when
she was at college. Nowadays, even though she still holds her callsign, she has no interest in amateur radio as she considered that
the hobby was populated by, and these were her words, Male Chauvinist Pigs. Which by the way isn't the reason why I became
her Ex-Husband :D

Just worked PU1YGM on 21Mhz cw in the MM Contest ....

In case you are wondering,in this contest if you are a YL you send continent and then Y so she sent me SAY and thats how I knew..its all a bit sexist if you ask me but there you go.

We need more women in the hobby. Their dinky fingers can't half crack out some fine morse.

Most of the interceptors at Bletchley Park were women. Spitfires and Lancasters may have been flown by men, but they were mainly built by women.
