The Amateur Radio Emergency Services are run by ARRL, national association for Amateur Radio. ARRL is a group of radio amateurs and is noncommercial. The vast majority of active radio amateurs in the US are part of ARRL. ARRL’s underpinnings as Amateur Radio’s witness, partner and forum are defined by five pillars: Public Service, Advocacy, Education, Technology, and Membership.

Interest in Amateur Radio is membership’s only real requirement.

  • Strives for every member to get involved, get active, and get on the air;
  • Encourages radio experimentation and, through its members, advances radio technology and education; and
