ARRL Kids Day is Today, June 18th!

Twice a year, ARRL offers an event designed to promote Amateur Radio to our youth. Share the excitement with your kids or grandkids, a Scout troop, a church or the general public!

Kids Day is designed to give on-the-air experience to young people and hopefully foster interest in getting a license of their own. It is also intended to give older hams a chance to share their station and love for Amateur Radio with their children.

Kids Day always runs from 1800 UTC (2:00PM EDT) through 2359 (7:59 PM EDT) UTC. Operate as much or as little as you like.
