ARRL offers a series of six posters that promote Amateur Radio to the general public. These were originally designed by ARRL for the 2017 National Scouting Jamboree, but may be used for any outreach effort. Each poster is 11″ x 17″.
The six posters are based around the theme, “Ham Radio Is…” Those themes are:
Adventure (Portable operating of all kinds)
Friendship (Community and Mentoring)
Out Of This World (Space Communications/Satellites)
Ready (Publc Service)
The Game (Contesting and Awards)
A link to ARRL’s “What Is Ham Radio” page is provided as both a URL and a QR code on each poster.
The posters are available for free download in PDF format. We suggest printing on high-gloss paper and framing them for maximum effect.
