ARRL Media and Public Relations Manager Sean Kutzko KX9X has added new 30-second radio/audio public service announcements (PSAs) to promote Amateur Radio and the 2014 ARRL Field Day
The spot named “Amateur” talks about the meaning of the word amateur and how the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) helps during disasters. It includes an 8-second “bed” at the end for local clubs to provide contact information. “Careers” tells how Amateur Radio skills can lead to a career path, and it references the ARRL website. “What Is Ham Radio” is a generic spot to promote how much fun Amateur Radio offers. It includes an 8-second bed at the end for a local club billboard.
Two PSAs for 2014 Field Day are available. One includes 8 seconds at the end for local clubs, one does not.
