ARRL Expresses Gratitude for Outpouring of Ham Aid Donations

10/12/2017 ARRL is thanking the Amateur Radio community for its generosity in support of the ARRL Ham Aid Fund, which is making it possible to provide relief and recovery communications in Puerto Rico. Overall, there have been more than 600 donations to the Ham Aid program in response to a call from ARRL President Rick Roderick, K5UR, and nearly $125,000 has come in from clubs and individuals. Several Amateur Radio retailers and manufacturers also have stepped up to donate needed equipment. Roderick said he was amazed at the overwhelming response, including those who answered his call to join the “Force of 50” now deployed in Puerto Rico.

“The Amateur Radio community really came together in providing donations of equipment, funding, and personnel in response to the great need in Puerto Rico,” Roderick said. “The scale of these efforts and the response is making history. This has got to be one of Amateur Radio’s greatest moments. Our sincere thanks go to all involved.”
