The YLISSB System was founded on February 9, 1963, by V. Mayree Tallman, K4ICA, a YL who resided in Miami, Florida. Being the wife of a medical doctor, as well as a ham radio operator, she recognized both the need for emergency communications in all parts of the world, along with the opportunity to do something about it from her home in Miami, Florida. In the early ‘60’s, the idea came to her of an Amateur Radio System with the primary purpose of handling emergencies anywhere in the world. So, on that Saturday morning in 1963, born from her idea was the ” YLISSB ” . The System originally was for YL’s only and was founded to handle emergencies anywhere in the world. The OM’s liked what they heard and it was not long before they petitioned for membership.
The rules were changed to permit OM’s to join, and our System is now at 18,228 membership Sideband Numbers issued. In today’s world of satellites, cellular telephones and other modern means of communicating, we do not get the number of emergencies we did in the earlier years, but emergencies still remain the number one priority of our System. Anyone traveling over land or sea anywhere in the world, should always keep the frequency of 14.332 MHZ in mind, we are always here, ready, willing, and experienced to help you.
