ARRL Auction 2019
The 14th Annual ARRL On-Line Auction is now live, and continues through Thursday, October 24, at 10 pm Eastern Standard time.

The 2019 auction includes lab-tested QST “Product Review” gear, vintage books, used equipment, and one-of-a-kind items, plus the ARRL Lab team has contributed six of the very popular “mystery boxes.”

Some premier “Product Review” items up for bid include the Elecraft KPA 1500 Legal-Limit HF and 6-Meter Linear Amplifier, ICOM IC-7310 HF and 6-Meter Transceiver, Palstar LA-1K 160-6 Meter Amplifier, FlexRadio Systems FLEX-6400M HF and 6-Meter SDR Transceiver, Kenwood TS-890S HF and 6-Meter Transceiver, and many more items.

The auction also will offer items donated from the popular television series “Last Man Standing,” starring Tim Allen, an actual radio amateur who portrays the fictional Mike Baxter, KA0XTT, in the show, which has featured ham radio in some episodes.

Among book offerings in the auction are the “sold out” 2019 ARRL Handbook Boxed Set, a special defense edition of The Radio Amateur’s Handbook from 1942, and a 1949 ARRL Antenna Book.

Proceeds from the annual On-Line Auction benefit ARRL education programs. These include activities to license new hams, strengthen Amateur Radio Emergency Service® training, offer continuing technical and operating education, and create instructional materials.
