Purpose of
North Carolina
ARRL Section Information

This web site was developed to provide up to date information to Internet users, particularly ARRL members in North Carolina on activities of radio amateurs, the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), including the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES®) in North Carolina.

HTML pages on this site are mostly created by the webmaster, some by others, using the NCARRL Style Guidelines. All of the content and most of the attached files are provided by section officials. Note from webmaster: I would like to thank the web designers who are my coworkers who spent some of their lunch hours helping me, reviewing the site, and making design suggestions. Not being radio amateurs, they preferred to remain unnamed. They are very responsible for the latest upgrade.

The NCARRL web site is here primarily for the NC ARRL members, not for the ARRL, the officers, or the webmaster. We already know the information that we are trying to convey. If any user has a suggestion about the site, we want to know about it. If whatever your request happens to be is in any way possible, we will do our best to get it online. If you as a user find any kind of error, a misspelled word, an outdated or inaccurate fact, or bad a link, do not assume that it's already been reported. Instead, please contact the webmaster with as much information as possible, including the address of the web page and the nature of any correction that needs to be made. The same goes for any suggestions for additional content on the page. We will accommodate if at all possible.

Section Facebook Page

The North Carolina Section has a Facebook page. The Facebook page does not replace All important information is posted on NCARRL. The Facebook page will contain brief announcements, usually with links back to for detailed information. There will be no content available only on Facebook.

Permissions are set up world-readable on the Facebook page. Nobody needs an account to view the page. However, if you are a Facebook member and "Like" the page, our announcements will appear on your wall when you view your page, as for any other page.
