Get Your Schwag

Visit the ARRL shop to purchase Field Day apparel, hats, patches, stickers, mugs, etc. Yes, shipping to Canada is an expensive endeavour - group your order with a friend and split the shipping cost. Order early as shipping is slow.

If you do not yet have a NORAC club id badge or hat, contact Bob VE7EZI and Grace VE7IGB at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to see what options are available and when the next order is going in. Hopefully you can get something to identify yourself to the hams you have not yet met yet (before the FD2023 event).
