The auction also will offer items donated from the popular television series “Last Man Standing,” starring Tim Allen, an actual radio amateur who portrays the fictional Mike Baxter, KA0XTT, in the show, which has featured ham radio in some episodes.

Among book offerings in the auction are History of QRP in the US 1924 – 1960, a special defense edition of The Radio Amateur’s Handbook from 1942, and a 1958 ARRL Handbook. 

Proceeds from the annual On-Line Auction benefit ARRL education programs. These include activities to license new hams, strengthen Amateur Radio Emergency Service® training, offer continuing technical and operating education, and create instructional materials.
