Prospective bidders must register and create an account. Your arrl.org user ID and password will not work on the auction site. Registration is a one-time action. If you have previously registered for the ARRL Online Auction, you can use the same username and password to sign into this year's auction.

It's not necessary to register to browse the items for sale on the site, and you can register at any time during the auction at arrl.auctionanything.com.
ARRL's Annual Online Auction is an important fundraiser and a critical means of support for ARRL educational programming. Auction proceeds ensure the continuation of programs that support the licensing of new hams, as well as Amateur Radio Emergency Service training, and enhancements to technical and operating education for all ARRL members and the greater Amateur Radio community.
