Amateur Radio is a valuable resource that deserves to be promoted to the public in a variety of ways. The ARRL has established a public information and relations wing of the field organization to help the general public discover the value of amateur radio overall.
The ARRL has established several public information campaigns to promote amateur radio, which can be seen on their national website. They have also designed an online course to help those involved with PR campaigns to be more effective and better prepared in their roles.
