How to Join the ARRL
The American Radio Relay League is the national association for amateur radio. This organization is amateur radio’s advocate and voice in protecting our bandwidth and promoting legislation and policies to support our hobby and its members. SVARC, being an ARRL affiliated club, encourages its members to also be members of ARRL (but it’s not required). It’s the best way you can support the health and ensure the future of amateur radio.
