The Amateur Radio License Plate Bill SB1132 which would return $17 of the vanity plate fee to the Amateur Radio community passed the House and Senate. Governor Doug Ducey signed the legislation into law on March 28, 2017. The law will take effect 90 days after the close of the legislation session which closed on May 10, 2017. This means the law takes effect on August 9th. For information on the bill and what it means to the Amateur Community, click on the ARCA/Section News link at the left of the screen.


Important Notice: The 2017 Williams Hamfest has been canceled. It was the decision of the board that ARCA will no longer hold a summer event. Any club that wishes to hold a hamfest in Williams, or elsewhere, in July, or any other time, is welcome to do so.
