ARRL Forum

Sunday October 22nd
1:00pm to 3:00pm



Pacificon is the ARRL’s Pacific Division Convention. The Division is managed by Division Director Bob Vallio, W6RGG and Vice Director Jim Tiemstra, K6JAT.

The Pacific Division ARRL Forum is held Sunday afternoon, after the last Forums have finished, the Exhibit Hall has closed, and perhaps you've had a chance to grab a bite.

At the ARRL Forum, you’ll have a chance to:


  • Meet the ARRL leadership
  • Learn about the latest news, events and activities at the ARRL
  • Ask questions directly to the leadership

ARRL is the national association for Amateur Radio in the United States. The organization has over 166,000 members worldwide, publishes the popular monthly journal QST, and coordinates an extensive all-volunteer field organization. Hear from ARRL officials on key areas of advocacy on behalf of members. Find out how ARRL supports dozens of ways to get involved and get on the air. Members and prospective members are all welcome!

At the conclusion of the Forum there will be the final prize drawing of the event, so be sure to be there to hear your winning ticket drawn.

What is the ARRL Pacific Division?
As shown at pdarrl.org, the ARRL Pacific Division includes the State of California from the Oregon border on the north to the lower end of the San Joaquin Valley (Kern Co.); the counties of Alpine and Mono along the Nevada border east of the Sierra Nevada mountains and south of Lake Tahoe; and the counties of San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, and Monterey along the Pacific Ocean south of San Francisco.

In addition to the part of California described above, the Pacific Division includes all of the States of Nevada and Hawaii and the U. S. Pacific Ocean islands to the west, such as American Samoa, Guam, Saipan, and the Mariana Islands. U. S. military bases and other facilities using AP ZIP Codes are also part of the Pacific Division.

The inland counties along the Nevada border south of Mono County and the coastal counties south of Monterey County are part of the Southwestern Division, as is all of Arizona.
