Welcome to the New ARRL Web Site!

04/13/2010

We’d like to welcome you to the new ARRL Web site. After more than two years of work, the staff, officers and Board of Directors are excited to show you what’s in store.

As you peruse the site, you’ll notice it’s set up a bit differently than the previous site. With the new site, we chose to focus on how you use Amateur Radio, instead of by departments here at HQ. For instance, in the “On the Air” section, you’ll find information on contesting, awards, Logbook of The World, international operating, special events, the QSL Bureau (both Incoming and Outgoing) and more. And in the “Public Service” section, you will find information on emergency communication, as well as served agencies and involvement opportunities. We are aware that some parts of the site, such as the QST Archive, are not yet available. We ask that you be patient while we try to bring everything over to the new site.

So go ahead -- take a look around! Make yourself at home on the Web site. We invite you to go ahead and set up your member profile while you’re here. Once you log in, click on “Edit Your Profile” -- it’s located right under the log-in area. Let us know what Amateur Radio activities you enjoy (and once you do, you’ll see information about your chosen activates on our home page, personalized just for you). This is also the place where members can sign up to receive The ARRL Letter and other e-newsletters, W1AW bulletins, license renewal notices, messages from your Section Manager and Director and more. You can join groups, add friends and even add a picture of yourself!

If you ever need help finding anything, look for the “Having Trouble?” link at the bottom of each page. Click it and report your problem; you will be contacted shortly with a solution. 

We hope you will enjoy this new Web site as much as we do here at ARRL Headquarters. Remember -- this is your Web site. Have some fun with it!
