We are in the process of redesigning the AARAI website, so please mind the dust. If you are looking for something that isn't on the new site, the old website is still available at

AARAI CD DiskThe entire AARAI archives going back to around 1960 (AARA and AARAI newsletters, Review and Herald radio logs, Youth’s Instructor logs, and various amateur radio articles in denominational journals), are now available!

Order by sending a check for $10.00 to Jim Hoffer, KW8T, 232 Mercury Way, Berkeley Springs, WV 25411-7438.

All proceeds will go to the AARAI.

AARAI BrochureWe have a beautiful AARAI promotional brochure, free for downloading.

Save it to your hard drive and print out as many as you wish. Print out on both sides of a sheet of paper, and fold in thirds, with the AARAI logo on the outside. It's a great promotional material to always display on your church's bulletin board.

Your Support is Needed

We are now able to accept donations via PayPal! A simple click on the icon below is all it takes. Your contributions are very important to us, whether cash donations or equipment. Sometimes we are able to provide a radio to a needy missionary or other individual. In addition, we have expenses for our website, office supplies, and many other things.

With the right funding, we could add ASI conferences and the like, but it all depends on the generosity of our members and friends. We have many other expenses for web hosting, office expenses, etc.
