10/21/2014

Bidding for the ninth annual ARRL On-Line Auction will get underway at 1400 UTC on Thursday, October 23. More than 230 items are on the block, including 24 pieces of gear that were the subject of QST “Product Review” articles and road tested by the ARRL Laboratory team. In addition to other miscellaneous transceivers and accessories there are more than 100 vintage books.

“We also have a number of one-of-a-kind pieces, including a hard-cover 2014 Centennial edition of The ARRL Handbook, imprinted with ‘Hiram Percy Maxim, W1AW’ to honor our founding president, plus another hard-cover 2014 Centennial Handbook bearing the number 100,” said ARRL Sales Manager Deb Jahnke, K1DAJ. “You’ll also find unique items, such as an autographed script from the popular television series ‘Last Man Standing’ starring Tim Allen. Ham radio has been mentioned in several episodes, and now Tim Allen is licensed for real.”

Proceeds from the On-Line Auction benefit ARRL educational programs, including activities aimed at licensing new hams, strengthening Amateur Radio's emergency service training, offering continuing technical and operating education, and creating instructional materials.

Bidding in the 2014 auction will end at 0300 UTC on October 31 (the evening of October 30 in US time zones). Check items in which you have an interest, as bidding end times for each item are staggered.
