Section: Both ARRL and the Radio Amateurs of Canada divide their respective countries into administrative districts known as Sections. Each Section encompasses a specific geographic area. Some Sections can be quite large, covering entire states or provinces. The largest state-wide ARRL Section is Alaska. Other states are divided into several Sections. California, for example, has a total of nine ARRL Sections. It is interesting to note that Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands are each separate Sections.
