The ARRL is the national association for Amateur Radio in the US. Founded in 1914 by Hiram Percy Maxim as The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) is a nonprofit (501.c3) membership association of amateur radio enthusiasts committed to advancing and advocating the science and technology of amateur radio through its commitment to Public Service, Advocacy, Education, Technology, and Membership.
The ARRL divides the United States and its territories into 71 administrative sections; each section is managed by an elected Section Manager responsible for the recruitment and coordination of a volunteer section field organization. Through these section field organizations, ARRL amateur radio operators volunteer countless hours of community service in providing essential emergency communications during natural and man-made disasters, as well as public service communications in support of special events such as marathons, bike races, and other public events.
The Utah Section of the American Radio Relay League represents the over 18,000 Utah amateur radio operators who volunteer to serve throughout our state. Our members are active in their communities and as members of various independent ARRL affiliated amateur radio clubs.
