Proceeds from the Auction benefit ARRL education programs including activities to license new hams, strengthen Amateur Radio’s emergency service training, offer continuing technical and operating education, as well as create instructional materials. “We have almost 200 items up for bid this year, a larger number than last year,” Jahnke said. “The week will be over before you know it, so don’t miss out!”
