The Western Massachusetts (WMA) ARRL field organization serves American Radio Relay League (ARRL) members in the western part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, comprised of Worcester, Franklin, Hampden, Hampshire and Berkshire counties.
Founded in 1914 by Hiram Percy Maxim, ARRL is the national association for Amateur Radio in the US, serving members by protecting and enhancing spectrum access and providing a natural resource to the public. Today, with more than 161,000 members, ARRL is the largest organization of radio amateurs in the world. ARRL's mission is based on five pillars: Public Service, Advocacy, Education, Technology, and Membership. If you haven't already, be sure to visit ARRL Headquarters' World Wide Web.
