ARRL Laboratory Mission Statement
The ARRL Lab and its staff provide a wide range of technical services and support to ARRL's membership, volunteers, officers and staff and the ARRL Field Organization.
Working in partnership with ARRL's Washington, DC Technical Relations Office, the ARRL Lab staff maintain strong contact with the professional industry to help ensure that Amateur Radio is represented in the development of industry standards and industry programs to address RFI/EMC issues. The Lab staff sit on a number of industry committees, including the IEEE EMC Society Standards Development Committee, the ANSI accredited C63 EMC committee and others. The Lab also has informal contact with many groups and companies in industry, ranging from groups like the Society of Cabletelecommunications Engineers to industry committees such as HomePlug, developing standards for in-house broadband over power line (BPL) devices.
We at the ARRL Laboratory are committed to provide its members with extensive test results of Amateur Radio related products through our monthly Product Review articles in QST.
