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.
