ARRL is the national association for Amateur Radio in the US. The American Radio Relay League, ARRL is a noncommercial organization of radio amateurs. ARRL numbers within its ranks the vast majority of active radio amateurs in the nation and has a proud history of achievement as the standard-bearer in amateur affairs. ARRL’s underpinnings as Amateur Radio’s witness, partner and forum are defined by five pillars: Public Service, Advocacy, Education, Technology, and Membership. Although membership in ARRL is not required, it is encouraged since ARRL is the best representation of our interests to the FCC and Congress.
