About ARRL Audio News

ARRL Audio News is a summary of the week’s top news stories in the world of Amateur Radio, hosted by Sean Kutzko, KX9X. Compiled from the ARRL Letter, ARRL Audio News condenses the major Amateur Radio news highlights of the week into a fifteen-minute audio report. Enjoy ARRL Audio News anywhere: on your smart phone or tablet, your local repeater, or stream it on the go!

Audio News Format

Each edition of ARRL Audio News runs about 15 minutes. For those airing ARRL Audio News on repeaters, listen for the letter "K" sent in Morse code every three minutes or so; that signals a five second pause in the audio. We provide these breaks to give you a moment to prevent your repeater from timing out or insert a repeater ID.
