Welcome to the Eastern Pennsylvania Section
of the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL)

The EPA Section is part of the Atlantic Division of the ARRL and is made up of thirty four counties in the eastern part of the commonwealth, and serves over 3800 ARRL members within those counties.

ARRL is the National Association for Amateur Radio in the US. It was founded in 1914 by Hiram Percy Maxim as The American Radio Relay League, and is a noncommercial organization of radio amateurs.  ARRL’s underpinnings as Amateur Radio’s witness, partner and forum are defined by five pillars: Public Service, Advocacy, Education, Technology, and Membership

We will post the latest news and updates from within the Section including club events, hamfest information, ARES/RACES updates, Traffic Reports and Youth and Scouting activity and more. However, we can only post what we know about. In order to keep this site up to date and current we need to hear from you. 

Send us your club events and articles of other activities you or your group is involved in. Submit your announcements and other articles and photos to us via email.
