Become a Member


The Columbia Amateur Radio Club has three membership classifications:

  1. Full membership. This is a full voting membership for licensed amateur radio operators with annual dues of $20.
  2. Licensed family members of a full member’s family can be issued a voting family membership for $5 for each participating family member.
  3. For those who have not gotten their license yet there is an associate non-voting membership for $5/yr. When family or Associated members upgrade their classification, a prorated portion of membership previous payments made during the year will be applied toward the dues that apply to the new classification. Dues can be adjusted as specified in the Bylaws.
  4. When you become a member your dues are free until your birthday. Your payment is applied on your birthday.
