Default [KE9V] ARRLs Big Numbers


ARRLs Big Numbers

Posted: 07 Aug 2016 04:31 AM PDT

The ARRL 2015 Annual Report is full of facts and figures and narrative
about the last year of operation.*Among the many numbers provided, I found
some to be particularly interesting. These stats were valid at the end of
2015 and most have will have grown since then.

Membership Growth at the end of 2015 there were 170,528 ARRL members.
That’s up about 5,000 from the previous year. It also represents the ninth
consecutive year of member growth. That 3% growth is twice the rate of new
US amateur radio licensees (1.3%) during the same period.
Social Media At the end of 2015, the ARRL Facebook page had*61,000 likes.
That’s up from 49,000 the previous year. 49% of visitors to the Facebook
page use a mobile device and those most likely to visit the Facebook page
are males aged 45-54. ARRL’s five Twitter feeds had 53,600 followers.
*ARRL Website & Publications *the*ARRL website received over 17 million
unique page views*in 2015. The Breaking/Current News crawler snags 500,000
unique visitors per month almost three times more traffic than members.
The ARRL Letter, published 50 times a year (email) free for members has
103,000 subscribers. The digital edition of QST magazine is downloaded by
20,000 readers a month. QEX has 6500 subscribers while NCJ has 1700.
Organization Income *over the course of 2015, ARRL income was roughly $6
million from member dues, $3.8 million from publication sales, and $2.5
million from advertising. Total income for the year was $14.8 million.
Logbook of the World LoTW now has over 84,000 users, with a database of
over 745 million QSOs.*LoTW’s popularity is unprecedented, as many hams now
use LoTW as the sole means of submitting their applications for DXCC, WAS,
and VUCC. Due to a significant amount of applicants utilizing the Online
DXCC program and Logbook of The World, data entry staffers have noticed a
decrease in the average size of traditional paper applications, and as a
result, applications are processed more rapidly.

Founded in 1914 by Hiram Percy Maxim and Clarence Tuska, the American Radio
Relay League (ARRL) is the national association for Amateur Radio in the
US. Today, ARRL is the largest organization of radio amateurs in the world.
Our mission is simple:

“To promote and advance the art, science, and enjoyment of Amateur Radio.”
